#EarthDay2020: Sustainability and Social Responsibility at the Vet School
We're very pleased to be able to share a blog post on sustainability in learning and teaching by Glen Cousquer, programme co-ordinator and lecturer for both the MSc One Health and MVetSci Conservation Medicine.
In a new post for the University's Teaching Matters blog, Glen contemplates the relationship between practising mindfulness and teaching about complex and transdisciplinary issues, like sustainability. How might “slowing down” enable a more generous understanding of these issues and expand our commitment to them?
