The Green Graduate: Educating Every Student as a Sustainable Practitioner
Mann, Samuel
NZCER Press
The challenge: every student graduates able to think and act as a sustainable practitioner, whatever their field. This is the goal Otago Polytechnic set itself and, as one of the main proponents, Samuel Mann became the go-to guy. Here he takes the reader on that journey and in doing so provides the framework for making sustainability a core competency for graduates across every kind of tertiary education and training. The book will give practitioners the tools to integrate sustainability into their programmes in ways that work for them and are directly relevant to their discipline. The book also tackles common barriers to sustainability education, from "Do we need to tackle this right now?" to "Is it even our problem?"
