TELI-G is the Tufts Environmental Literacy Institute for Graduate Students! This January TIE will be hosting the 2nd annual weekend-long workshop aimed at enhancing Tufts graduate students’ environmental literacy.
Systems Thinking in Sustainable Development and Environmental Justice
Incorporating environmental economics, social justice, and sustainability to help graduate students apply systematic thinking into their own field and professional interests.
Tufts graduate students will participate in a simulation exercise, interact with peers, and acquire tools to interpret environmental issues through an interdisciplinary lens. After participating in the TELI-G conference, students will be better equipped to integrate environmental topics into their teaching and to produce a cutting-edge thesis. Hosted by the Tufts Institute of the Environment (TIE) in the Chase Center, participants will define environmental literacy from an interdisciplinary lens.
This past December, 27 graduate students applied to participate in TELI-G. We have accepted 15 students from a variety of fields (English, Economics, Engineering, Public Health, Agriculture, and more) to participate in this extremely interdisciplinary workshop.
