Session 1: Sustainability & Climate Change 101 (Kim Anderson & Mike Hoffmann)
April 17th 9am-Noon

Cornell recognizes the need for all managers to become better equipped to lead sustainable change within their units. In fact, 100% of Cornell staff members have sustainability in their job description. This session, part one of sustainability training, provides an introduction to climate change (including the cause, evidence, and impacts locally and worldwide) and sustainable behavior change. The urgency of climate change lays the foundation for Cornell to refine its operations and train managers to actively lead and co-create a culture of sustainability across campus. Participants will learn how Cornell is responding to this grand challenge, and managers will explore tools and strategies for enacting sustainable practices within your unit and everyday work. This session can be taken alone for users seeking basic sustainability knowledge, or paired with Sustainability 201 for complete training. 

 Learning objectives:

1. Understand climate change, including its cause, evidence, and impacts

2. Understand Cornell’s multi-level response to climate change and sustainability challenges

3. Develop plans for integrating sustainability into their units

4. Understand and use Community-Based Social Marketing to drive sustainable behavior change
