Sustainability at Antioch College: Classrooms, Campus, Co-op, Community

May 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The Antioch Environmental Sustainability program is woven across the College. Principles of sustainability are explored in our classrooms, lived in our campus operations, strengthened through co-operative education and work experiences, and shared with our Antioch Community. This presentation, provided by Dr. Kim Landsbergen (Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science) and Dr. Sean Payne (Associate Professor of Political Economy), will discuss these areas of Sustainability at Antioch as well as share some success stories of recent graduates who have earned degrees related to sustainability, and have moved on to jobs and graduate school programs in the field.

Kim Landsbergen

Kim Landsbergen is an ecologist who uses physiological and biogeochemical methods to study carbon and water dynamics in terrestrial systems, usually in the context of climate change, invasive plants, urban ecosystems, and land management. Prof. Landsbergen is a certified senior ecologist with the Ecological Society of America and owner of CarbonEcology Consulting. She has published more than 20 peer-reviewed ecology papers in scientific journals. She also holds an appointment as Visiting Research Scholar with Ohio State University’s Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology. Kim joins the faculty most recently from the Columbus College of Art and Design, where she was an ‘embedded professor of science’. There she taught courses with themes in ecology, biomimicry, sustainable design, and infographics—the visual communication of scientific information. Previously, she taught at Ohio University in the Environmental and Plant Biology and Environmental Science programs. Community engaged practice from an ecological perspective can take many forms.
