Agents for Sustainable Community Change: Webinar and Workshop Series Part 1: The Intersection of Materials Science & Global Sustainable Development

Feb 16, 2022 12:00pm ‐ Feb 16, 2022 1:30pm


Join us for this new webinar and workshop series – Agents for Sustainable Community Change ­– to learn about sustainability, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how to catalyze diverse community collaborations toward a shared project action plan on sustainability within your local community.

In 2015, the leaders of the 193 United Nations Member States committed to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and address climate change. As materials scientists, where do we fit in?

Part I of this series, The Intersection of Materials Science & Global Sustainable Development, will provide an overview of the SDGs and lead participants in interactive small-group discussions to identify how materials scientists can contribute to creating a more sustainable future.

Note that this session will be interactive, and will be using Google Jamboard. If you would like to learn a little more about Jamboard before the session, feel free to watch this tutorial video.

This virtual workshop is open to everyone and is offered free of charge by MRS' Focus on Sustainability Subcommittee. Become a change-maker for achieving environmental security, social equity and economic prosperity. Help improve the quality of life and leave a better world for our children.
