In exploring the theme of Energizing Our Ecosystems, Prescott College President John Flicker will challenge the Prescott College graduates, current students, and community to think creatively about sustainability and what it means in an ever changing world. As we engage in research and practice in our local communities and around the globe, how will we adapt to rapidly evolving ecosystems that are being impacted by climate change and transformed by technology? John Flicker will address these and other opportunities in his keynote, while also engaging the audience in a robust discussion about how we can collectively thrive in and uplift the ecosystems we are entangled within. 

About the Symposium

The Prescott College Symposium on Sustainability Education is an annual conference bringing community members, experts, and students of sustainability education together to learn about the latest work in this new field and to connect and celebrate our emerging scholars. Each Spring, the Prescott College Ph.D. program in Sustainability Education hosts a symposium centered around the theme of sustainability and its connection with education throughout our society.  Over the course of the two-day symposium, participants learn from an array of internationally-known keynote speakers and other renowned sustainability and education experts in a variety of modes: panel discussions, workshops, formal presentations, and via informal networking opportunities.

The Prescott College Limited-Residency Ph.D. program in Sustainability Education’s mission is to create an informed, involved citizenry with the social and scientific literacy, commitment, and creative problem-solving skills to engage in responsible individual and cooperative actions toward a sustainable society. Achieving sustainability in all dimensions of human existence depends on adopting an educational paradigm that manifests and supports change toward a sustainable, secure society. The Limited-Residency Ph.D. program in Sustainability Education strives to contribute to synergistic learning and change in consciousness, education, culture – and, ultimately, society.
