Overview

Applied Sustainability: Learning Today How We Impact Tomorrow is designed to give rising high school juniors and seniors a substantial college-level experience to use the initiatives and resources of the Carleton community as laboratories of innovation, reflection, creative thinking, and problem solving.

Understanding how our behavior today influences our ability to meet the needs of tomorrow is critical to building a more resilient planet. Grass roots initiatives, innovative companies, and progressive institutions are working to create solutions to help meet present global resource needs without compromising those of future generations. True sustainability, however, is complex and multifaceted, and as a result, creating a sustainable future requires a holistic and integrated approach.

In this course, you will learn how faculty from across the liberal arts curriculum are contributing to this global conversation while also using the initiatives and resources of the Carleton campus and Northfield community as working laboratories of innovation, reflection, creative thinking, and problem solving.

By the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to present your results to your peers, parents, and Carleton community at the symposium. This will be a great opportunity to recognize your hard work, but also a time of celebration in a collegial atmosphere.
