Climate Take Back

Speaker: Lisa Conway VP Sustainability, Americas, Interface
View Bio

According to research conducted by Interface and Net Impact, 95% of climate experts believe that it is possible to reverse global warming and 91% of young leaders agree. The reason that both think it is possible is because we have everything we need, and both think the only thing that stands in our way is business as usual. Last year, the most comprehensive guide to reversing global warming was introduced by Paul Hawken entitled Drawdown followed by Bruce King's The New Carbon Architecture. Interface's "Climate Take Back" plan offers an easy-to-understand framework which can be understood, adopted, and implemented by any organization. The research and the framework will be provided to all participants.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define embodied carbon and be able to talk about it with suppliers.
  2. Give examples from each of the (4) pillars of the framework.
  3. Think of Yale specific opportunities for engaging with each of the Climate Take Back pillars.
  4. Understand carbon smart building beyond operational efficiency.

Classrooms with rows of desks and a blackboard in front are a thing of the past, but how can educators and education companies work together to create environments that truly transform student learning? Drawing from the findings of MDR's report on the impact of learning spaces on student outcomes, this panel explores the creative ways teachers are using new tools, technologies and products to design learning spaces that accelerate achievement and how education companies collaborate with them to develop learning space solutions. Panelists will address the importance of a pedagogical approach to designing spaces driven by learner needs and curriculum.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover new ways to think about learning space design and the factors that impact it.
  2. Learn strategies for collaborating with educators/education companies for creating spaces that transform learning.
  3. Explore the meaning of a pedagogical approach to designing learning spaces.
  4. Think in new ways about the connection between "where" students learn and learning outcomes.
