Black Liberation and Sustainability Pedagogy

When and Where

Thursday, June 02, 2022 10:00 am to 11:30 am


Centering sustainability at the University of Toronto requires critiquing and re-imagining the ways that teaching and learning occurs in higher education. This panel discussion focuses on how intersections with anti-Black racism and Black liberation can strengthen sustainability curricula and pedagogy in courses and programs across multiple disciplines. The panel, moderated by Matthew Webbe, (System Principal – Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging for the Simcoe County District School Board), features Dr. Fikile Nxumalo, (Assistant Professor, OISE, University of Toronto), Dr. Ingrid Waldron (HOPE Chair in Peace and Health, McMaster University), and Dr. Jennifer Adams, (Associate Professor at the University of Calgary). This panel discussion is the second in a series of learning events that focuses on aligning pedagogies that are used to teach sustainability with equity, inclusion and transformation.
