Faculty and staff support for "Sustainable Thinking" course
We, the participating faculty and staff of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, petition the members of the administrative body and/or the department responsible for, to permit and support the establishment of the student-driven course titled “Sustainable Thinking”, here at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst for the Spring semester of 2011.
I support the establishment of the course titled “Sustainable Thinking”
as it exposes valuable information and discussion about our planet,
society and existence as species; past, present, but mainly future. I
recognize that we are at the threshold of a worldwide shift in
environmental and spiritual perception that will lead towards a more
holistic and sustainable world; hence I recognize and the absolute necessity
to provide a structured platform for information and dialogue in an
academic setting such as the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
