In a world of colliding social and environmental crises, every discipline is crucial to the pursuit of a safer, fairer, and more sustainable future.
Many academics are concerned about the future, and are looking for ways to integrate socio-environmental crises into curricula, bridge disciplinary silos, and empower students as active participants in their education.
