Join us for this webinar with Yun-Wen Chan to explore a place-based deliberative approach that engages students in discussing local sustainability challenges through exploring different stakeholders’ contesting viewpoints. We will go through different cases in Texas, Georgia, and Taiwan.

Walk away with resources and ideas to use in your higher education classroom.
