New in HOORC's Library: universities and education for sustainability
This week HOORC staff is reviewing the draft plan for development of the Maun Campus of the University of Botswana. Recommendations of the draft plan include undergraduate teaching programmes in natural resources management and tourism. Recently arrived in the library is Inside and out : universities and education for sustainable development, edited by Robert Forrant and Linda Silka, which explores how public universities can make sustainability integral to the education of its students. The book further develops discussions held at a conference at the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2003 and includes a description of that University's efforts to further integrate its work in the surrounding community. You can find the book, and the draft Maun Campus plan, in HOORC's Library.
