El proyecto Healing Earth sigue avanzando

Ya está disponible el capítulo sobre energía. Y se están programando webinars para futuros usuarios. Eso sí, la traducción al español creo que hay que mejorarla :)

Participate in our live Healing Earth Webinar on October 15th or 16th

Participe en nuestra Sanando La Tierra seminario en Español.

It was a privilege to introduce our free online environmental science e-textbook, Healing Earth, to the Jesuit university presidents at the 2015 Conference on Jesuit Higher Education in Melbourne, Australia. As promised at the conference, we are conducting free, live webinars to help inform the faculty in your colleges/universities about Healing Earth for their potential use in the classroom. We request that you please forward this webinar invitation to the appropriate deans and faculty at your institution.

Faculty Textbook Adopters:  Healing Earth, a Jesuit environmental science e-textbook was written by over 90 scholars from Jesuit colleges and universities worldwide. Scholars have collaborated for over three years to write this textbook that calls attention to the most pressing environmental issues of our time and fully integrates the perspectives of ethics, spirituality and action. Whether students explore the declining biodiversity in Kakadu or how climate change affects the Mongolian Herders, they will learn environmental science through the Ignatian lenses of ethics, spirituality and a call to action to steward our ever-changing planet.

We’d like to invite you to join us for a free one-hour webinar on Healing Earth on October 15 or 16, 2015. We will describe how a traditional environmental science course can be transformed by the additional perspectives of ethical evaluation, spiritual reflection and effective action. There will be ample time for questions to be answered. For your convenience we will be offering the webinar at two separate times and it will be recorded.

October 15, 2015 at 1 p.m. and October 16, 2015 at 1 a.m. (UTC)

Please forward this webinar invitation email broadly throughout your institution. Healing Earth is ideal for Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Biology, Ecology, Sociology, and Theology faculty. Parts or all of this textbook can be used in first and second year university courses that focus on the environment, environmental action, social justice, ethics, spirituality or civic engagement.
