What are some of the most exciting innovations in your field that respond to our changing climate and at risk populations?

Multimedia slide presentation

This week you will build a multimedia slide presentation of your navigation plans with the critical moral vision our various authors and faiths call us to consider. Slides will include text and images, and you will narrate your presentation with the use of a voice-over screencast. Because we are have different passions, gifts and professional aspirations, each of our paths will be unique moral responses to the various needs of our larger human family, today and for the years to come, whose survival has been threatened by global warming. In preparation: By Monday, do one more web quest for innovative projects or business models within the context of your hopeful profession to join the revolution for a sustainable, equitable world. Within an hour or so I found green innovations in, architecture, clean energy, urban farms, nursing, international law, and high school curriculum development. The think tank is enormous and growing daily (Some of my favorite sites are now feeding me weekly updates of ongoing professional inspiration. A nice change from newspapers alone). a. By way of introduction it would be helpful to provide context to this three-part mission statement with a declaration of personal belief that summarizes your moral point of view at the end of this course (I believe — about the state of our planetary home, and that it is my moral obligation to live more sustainably because…..). For example, McKibben’s point of view is both scientific and utilitarian – As journalist he has researched boatloads of information about climate change and its economic causes. As a utilitarian ethicist he would say time has run out for multiple options, and among our choices now there are extreme costs to weigh between maintaining our growth trajectories or downshifting fast. Moe-Lobeda’s point of view is much more theological. She also sees the connections between economics and ecological degradation, but for her the outrageous injustice to the voiceless throngs in the southern hemisphere and our moral complicity with it makes changing this her essential act of Christian Love and Kingdom building. Lets let this be your opening slide (or two), and you can choose the sequence thereafter. b. Personal plans. What are your hopes to transform your personal lifestyle? This could include ideas for simplification, fair trade shopping, less driving and more bus, light rail or biking, eating differently, or planting some vegetables with neighbors in an urban garden. Naturally, many of you already do such things. Highlight new ideas you hope to incorporate. Credit the source if one of our authors or the mitigation group in the IPCC gave you the idea, for example. Will these changes benefit you? Anyone else? How so? c. Policy engagement. What might be your pet public policy issue? Of all the dynamics you’ve seen exposed that endangers human and planetary well-being, which is most impressive and motivating to you? Which author or documentary called this to your attention? Why this one, among others? Here you explain why this one policy can influence so many areas of human and planetary well-being. What kinds of things can you see yourself doing on behalf of this issue? Who will benefit from this work? Will you as well? d. Professional aspirations. How can you bring this moral vision to your career? What are some of the most exciting innovations in your field that respond to our changing climate and at risk populations? What core business values or actual professional projects did you find that you would like to be a part of? Again, who benefits? Will you?
