    Personal Sustainability Practices:  Faculty Approaches to Walking the Sustainability Talk and Living the UN SDGs,

    Edited by Mark Starik and Patricia Kanashiro


    New Resource on Faculty Sustainability Practices!

    Mark Starik (Univ. of Wisconsin System and Walden Univ.) and Patricia Kanashiro (Loyola Univ. Maryland) are very pleased to announce (along with our good friend and collaborator/contributor, Gordon Rands of Western Illinois Univ., and with Edward Elgar Publishing) a new resource for faculty and soon-to-be-faculty who teach and research (and perform service) on the topic of Sustainability.

    Personal Sustainability Practices:  Faculty Approaches to Walking the Sustainability Talk and Living the UN SDGs

    Edited by Mark Starik, University of Wisconsin System and Walden University, and Patricia Kanashiro, Loyola University Maryland, US

    Personal Sustainability Practices is a collection of 19 academic and practitioner perspectives on the topic of faculty personal sustainability. The book addresses the issues of whether, how, where, and when faculty who teach, research, consult, and perform academic and community service are, or need to be, practicing and communicating their own sustainability behaviors with students and other stakeholders. The contributors represent multiple countries, disciplines, academic levels and affiliations, and orientations on those issues and on the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) related to their personal sustainability practices. 

    The chapter contributions highlight the several main concepts of systems, internal and external integration, curriculum development, and social movements. The key takeaway is that many sustainability scholars are practicing and communicating a wide variety of sustainability actions but that greater consistency and frequency among faculty sustainability values, expression, and actions are generally possible and necessary, and that further exploration of this overall topic is encouraged.

    Current faculty and doctoral students in the field of environmental or socio-economic sustainability, as well as business, government and nonprofit organization executives who interact with said faculty, will be inspired by the examination of values and personal practices.

    ‘This book on personal sustainability is a unique and urgently needed volume for advancing sustainable development. As faculty, we disparage companies and managers, but seldom do we turn our scrutiny inward and focus on our own personal commitment and conduct. This is a unique and most inspiring volume and I enthusiastically recommend it.’
