(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Part one of a conference emphasizing two complementary issues: sustainable science and sustainable science communication. This conference discuss how the transition to a sustainable society will require a “third industrial revolution”, in which manufacturing, transportation and communication are conducted within constraints imposed by resource availability and supply risk; limitations on energy and freshwater consumption; and knowledge about the environmental fate and transport of components.

The Food Literacy Project cultivates an understanding of food from the ground up. Education focuses on four integrated areas of food and society: agriculture, nutrition, food preparation and community. Ultimately, the project goal is to promote enduring knowledge, enabling consumers to make informed food choices.
FLP Fellows: The Food Literacy Project offers 15 undergraduate and five graduate fellowship opportunities for Harvard students particularly interested in learning about, and engaging others, in our complex food system. FLP Fellows work on independent and team projects to organize educational and hands-on opportunities for the Harvard and wider communities to learn about food. The Food Literacy Project also works to connect and engage various research and academic initiatives at Harvard working on issues related to the food system. We are currently accepting 2014/2015 FLP Fellow applications

“Climate Change: a question of justice?”
2015 is a big year for international climate change politics! In December, the leaders of the world will gather in Paris with the aim to negotiate the first comprehensive climate treaty in over twenty years. Many tough issues will have to be resolved. One of the main sticking points is the different view on climate justice between northern and southern countries. In this course you will get all the necessary background information you need in order to understand the current state of international climate negotiations.
Welcome to Transition Studies. To prosper for very much longer on the changing Earth humankind will need to move beyond its current fossil-fueled civilization toward one that is sustained on recycled materials and renewable energy. This is not a trivial shift. It will require a major transition in all aspects of our lives.
This weblog explores the transition to a sustainable future on our finite planet. It provides links to current news, key documents from government sources and non-governmental organizations, as well as video documentaries about climate change, environmental ethics and environmental justice concerns.
The links are listed here to be used in whatever manner they may be helpful in public information campaigns, course preparation, teaching, letter-writing, lectures, class presentations, policy discussions, article writing, civic or Congressional hearings and citizen action campaigns, etc. For further information on this blog see: About this weblog. and How to use this weblog.
