The UWI Responsible Futures Programme Teach-In 2024

Posted Thursday, February 29, 2024

Ms Sandrea Maynard, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Global Affairs is pleased to announce that The UWI has joined Responsible Futures (RF), an important programme designed to embed and mainstream sustainability and resilience across the entire institution (operations, infrastructure and procurement, curricular and non-curricular activities). RF is led by the International Association of Universities (IAU), in partnership with Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK). As a member of the 600 institution strong IAU, The UWI was specially invited to participate based on its expertise and focus on Caribbean sustainable development and its leadership in the Global University Consortium on the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13 (Climate Action). The UWI is the first Caribbean university invited to participate.

A major first step for The UWI towards embedding and mainstreaming holistic sustainability and climate justice in learning, is to take part in the 7th annual international Teach In across the month of March 2024. This campaign is delivered by SOS-UK and calls on educators to pledge to include the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in their teaching, training, and learning throughout the month – participants will be given case studies and ideas to show how this can be done.

To give a full understanding and to make it easy for full participation, all UWI lecturers are invited to participate in a short online session The Lecturers Teach In Overview, on Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 3 p.m. Eastern Caribbean time. Interested persons can join via Zoom by clicking here (Meeting ID: 880 7752 0362 | Passcode: 622058) For queries /details, please contact: Regional Director, UWI Responsible Futures: Celia Davidson Francis at:
