SOCIO-ECOLOGICAL RESPONSIBILITY IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING EDUCATION (SERSEE)
Workshop
May 23-24, 2019

Overview

The workshop will continue the long-time work of the Network "Socio-Ecological Responsibility Teaching in Science and Engineering" whose members exchange teaching and learning practices through the integration of sustainability, peace, democracy and ethics.

It provides a platform for the strong cooperation within the education society, scientists and engineers.

We get the time to establish the professional society and standard committee to insert the progressive social and ecological standards in engineering education.

The last network meeting took place in Berlin in 2016. The schedule of that meeting can be found here:

Objectives

ü To exchange teaching experiences and new ideas (units, plans, methods, programmes) in Socio-Ecological Responsibility education;

ü To present the existing (also proposed) short teaching-units underpinned by theoretical reflections;

ü To discuss the multi-level teaching standards coordination in Engineering Education through the social and ecological benefits;

ü To create a Road-Map draft for the professional collaboration;

ü To establish The Society of Socio-Ecological Responsibility in Science and Engineering Education (SERSEE).

The organizers also will spread the outcomes of the workshop further by publishing written proceedings with peer-reviewed contributions.

We invited to take part in our event:

1) Dr. Manpreet Singh Manna, Director of AICTE, India, New Delhi (https://www.aicte-india.org/);

2) Dr. Tom Børsen, Head of the Study Board for Techno-Anthropology and Sustainable Design, Department of Planning, Aalborg University, Denmark, Copenhagen;

3) Dr. Yann Serreau, Vice-Director of the InnoVent-E Project, France, Paris;

4) Dr. André Baier, Coordinator of the Sustainability Certificate for Students, Technische Universität, Germany, Berlin;

5) Kiera Reifschneider, SOtL Programme, Arizona State University, USA, Washington.



Holding the event with the support of UN Environment Programme will give a powerful impetus to the work being carried out. It will contribute to organizing the basic operational platform of the higher education standards in social and environmental responsibility.



Venue

The conference will take place on May 23-24, 2019.

Address: Russian Office of UN Environment, 9, Leontyevsky lane, 125009 Moscow, Russia.
