TDCP Dec. 4 event poster

Transdisciplinary Knowledge Co-Production (TDCP) Workshop for early career researchers, post-doctoral fellows and PhD students at U of T  

Engaged scholarship that involves partnership with non-academic stakeholders and addresses real world and complex challenges of sustainability and climate change requires a different approach to building knowledge and facilitating action. The Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability (CECCS) is hosting a Transdisciplinary Knowledge Co-Production (TDCP) Workshop for early-career researchers, post-doctoral fellows and PhD students at U of T.  The first pilot session will introduce the concept of TDCP research, offer an opportunity to discuss the perspectives of different academic and non-academic partners, and include a working lunch to discuss what U of T should do to encourage more TDCP.

Time: 10:00am – 1:00pm, Monday, December 4, 2023

Location: Hart House (7 Hart House Circle, Toronto M5S 3H3)

Lunch will be provided.

The deadline to register for the workshop is 11:59 PM, 26th November 2023.

CLOSED: 2022 Call for Nominations: Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability (CECCS)

Background

The President’s Advisory Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability (CECCS) was created in 2017, with the goals of making sustainability a key component of the University of Toronto identity, achieving international leadership in the integration of operational and academic sustainability, and coordinating sustainability activities across the three campuses. Since then, the Committee has extended its reach and impact across new cross cutting themes and subcommittees and supported the work of sustainability leaders across and beyond the university. In light of the university’s commitment to sustainability and increasing urgency of the climate crisis, the Committee’s work to accelerate our action on the sustainable development goals is more crucial than ever.

Call for Nominations – Committee on the Environment, Climate Change, and Sustainability

I am seeking nominations for the following CECCS positions for a one-year term, ending December 2023:

  • One faculty member (divisional appointment St. George Campus)

Members of the University community are invited to submit nominations or expressions of interest to serve on the CECCS by October 31, 2022. You may submit nominations on your own behalf or nominate another individual.
