If a sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, then a truly advanced technology will be indistinguishable from nature.

Sustainability: finding solutions for the continuing co-existence of humans and other life on this planet.

Fall 2009 Flex Week

Strides toward Teaching Sustainably

Walk and talk with us, as we develop and share strategies for bringing sustainability into our course content and classroom practices. We'll begin our walk at the base of the road up to the Horticulture Center, and continue up the hill and through into the woods behind campus. Bring comfortable walking shoes, sun protection and a canteen/reusable bottle. Let's walk and enjoy the world we're working to protect!

Monday, Aug. 24, 3-5pm
Karen Groppi, Michelle Merrill, Elissa Wagner

Fall 2009 News

Many sustainability classes at Cabrillo Collge have been put on-hold due to budget cuts. ANTHR 19G Surviving the Future: The (Re)emergence of Sustainable Cultures is NOT being offered in Fall 2009, and may not be offered in Spring 2010 (although it has been approved to be expanded into a 2-unit course in the future). Curriculum for a new class, ES 50 Local Sustainability Research and Solutions, was approved in February 2009, but is not being offered, again due to the reduced units available during this budget crunch. The reasoning for not offering these courses is that they are not part of the core curriculum - they are electives not currently considered essential for transfer, graduation or certificates.
