We are proud to announce that TIE will be hosting the 8th Annual Tufts Environmental Literacy Institute (TELI), a four-day workshop for educators and researchers involved with higher education, from May 19th to 22nd, 2015. At TELI, participants from a variety of educational institutions will explore methods of incorporating environmental issues into their curricula and research, access resources, develop ideas, and engage with other educators. The theme of this year’s TELI is Climate-Safe Energy Futures: Vision, Implementation, and Education and will be co-led by Charles Heaps from the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Antje Danielson, Administrative Director at TIE.
We seek educators and researchers of varying backgrounds from around the world who are interested in preparing for a climate-safe energy future. Over the past twenty-four years, more than two hundred faculty have participated in TELI. As a result, thousands of students have learned to synthesize different disciples and approach complex issues such as climate change and environmental sustainability. TELI 2015 is also an opportunity to network and collaborate in an interdisciplinary setting with academics on global energy challenges. We highly encourage you to apply regardless of your background on the subject matter because ensuring a climate-safe energy future will require holistic and interdisciplinary solutions. Topics that will be covered include International Climate Justice, Energy Policy, and Climate Change Modeling. If you are interested in participating, please apply using this form, which may also be found on our website.
