On behalf of the International Center for Sustainability Across the Curriculum (IC-SAC), below are some resources that may be useful during our current on-line transition.

The Solutions Journalism Network (SJN) and Solutions U are offering robust teaching resources to engage college students in creative and critical thinking about solutions to global challenges. These collections align precisely with the mission of the AASHE Centers for Sustainability Across the Curriculum

SolutionsU identifies, vets, and tags high-quality solutions stories in one searchable database.

The UN Global Goals Teaching Collections provide educators with material that is easy to access and integrate into college courses across disciplines, and that shifts the focus from Doom and Gloom to Solutions.

Each SJN Teaching Collection includes:

  • three or more solutions journalism stories, published by reputable news outlets and curated for educators;
  • six to eight discussion questions aligned with Bloom’s Taxonomy of cognition to “help teachers teach and students learn;”
  • robust teaching notes so educators can easily integrate solutions-focused global competency education into their courses;
  • a copy and customize feature for educators to adapt each collection to align with their course learning outcomes.

Finally, stories are flowing into the Solutions Story Tracker about government-level responses to the coronavirus, and soon they will likely have hundreds of stories about local, community-level responses. Those will be shared with SJN's network of educators, creating resources that we hope will be helpful in generating discussion about effective responses to this crisis.
