HFES Sustainability Taskforce Webinar: How Educational Programs Must Adapt to Address Sustainability
July 27 - July 27, 2023
12:00 PM ET
Free for HFES Members and Non-Members of HFES
Humanity is facing multiple crises of its own making including the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, land degradation, and widespread social inequality. In this webinar, we will discuss the core skills and core content that needs to be included in HFE curricula to prepare our future (and current) HFE practitioners to address the multiple crises referred to collectively as “sustainability”. In this webinar, Prof. Pereira from the Global Change Institute and the Stockholm Resilience Center will engage in a dialogue with Prof. Andrew Thatcher from the International Ergonomics Association's Future of Work Task Force about what needs to go into the curricula of HFE programs to prepare students for the challenges presented by sustainability and climate change.
