The St. Louis Higher Education Sustainability Consortium is hosting a workshop to begin the conversation around incorporating Indigenous perspectives into strategic planning for universities and colleges. Our speakers include Erika Bailey-Johnson from Bemidji State University and Devon Fernandes from Humber College. Both have worked to incorporate the voices of Indigenous people and other cultural backgrounds into the process of strategic planning. Join them in a conversation on the process of meaningfully including multiple perspectives and voices into strategic planning. They will discuss ways they have worked to create a common vision of sustainability, include multiple cultural backgrounds, and authentically connect with all stakeholders in the university community. Come with your perspectives and questions to this lively conversation!
Josoor Institute, the training and education arm of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), recently held a new webinar focused on the circular economy – an economic approach aimed at minimising waste. Moderated by Orjan Lundberg, Sustainability & Environmental Expert at the SC, speakers discussed different strategies and best practices in implementing sustainable practices in relation to supply chain and waste management in the planning of large events held in urban settings. Alexandre Hedjazi, Director of the Global Environmental Policy Programme at the University of Geneva, emphasised the role urgency plays in encouraging event planners to unlock innovative solutions. In particular, he discussed initiatives that addressed challenges related to providing sustainable critical infrastructures during a large event while ensuring their long-term legacy afterwards.
