We know that faculty need first-hand experience abroad to support their in-class innovations. Our inaugural GIS – "Sustainable Development and the Global City" – focuses on a crucial issue as the second decade of the 21st century opens: environmental sustainability. Therefore, CEA is taking advantage of one of its key strengths—the global city—as the platform for this exploration.
Our first Global Issues Seminar will address environmental sustainability issues facing Spain, with a particular focus on Madrid. The seminar will be held at CEA’s Global Campus in Madrid and will draw on a wide range of experts in government, advocacy and academia to bring the challenges of Spain’s environmental agenda into focus. Participants will hear from a Madrid City Council Member, Greenpeace Spain, urban specialists, and academic counterparts and will visit key sustainability sites in the area.
The goal of these seminars is to provide meaningful professional development experiences that enable faculty members to move in new directions and revise current courses to include leading global issues. We know these are financially tough times for colleges and universities. CEA has subsidized this seminar to keep the cost to faculty and institutions as low as possible. Join us for what promises to be an exciting and enlightening 10 days in Madrid this June 13-22. For more information on CEA’s Global Issues Seminar in Madrid, visit www.gowithcea.com/GIS.
