For universities, sustainability is an essential literacy for the 21st century. LIU Post’s Center for Sustainability wants faculty and students to have powerful and effective digital tools for bringing sustainability frameworks into classrooms, campus research, and learning experiences. GreenTech LIU (GTLIU) will provide an integrated digital platform for faculty and students to collaborate on global citizenship research and education projects. We believe that global citizenship education (GCE) serves as a center axis that can help to integrate sustainability activities across the LIU Post campus. Sustainability and global citizenship are essential skills for 21st century students, regardless of students’ academic majors.
