October 15th will be Blog Action Day 2009 and IHEC Blog has registered and will participate. The theme of Blog Action Day 2009 is Climate Change and my plan is to highlight the various efforts and resources in the field of international education that focus on climate change. Examples of what might be included in my Blog Action Day post are:
- Social networks/listservs for international educators that focus on sustainability and greening the field
- study abroad/exchange programs with significant course content focused on the environment
- Standards of Good Practice
- Study Abroad Programs/Providers mission statements and/or efforts in this area
In order to produce a good resource I need your assistance! Please take a moment to leave a comment below with information (preferably links) on what your study abroad program, institution, or organization is doing in this area and I will gladly list and provide a link. Additionally, if you know of any resources I should list please leave a brief description with any links in the comment section. An example of what I'm looking for can be found in the great work of GlobaLinks Learning Abroad in their efforts to go Green which you can read about here.
Thank you in advance and I look forward to reading your suggestions in the comments section!
