Presidio Graduate School is proud to offer a Master Class by Andres Edwards. This Master Class is open to the public.
Previewing an upcoming book project, educator and author Andres Edwards will discuss the connection between global ecological challenges and personal well-being. At a time when we face daunting global issues, what are the strategies that can help us identify enduring solutions that work for all? How do we tackle the myths and seemingly overwhelming challenges that can easily generate helplessness, apathy and cynicism? Andres will describe the integration of the sustainability framework’s three E’s: Ecology, Economy, Equity with the three Cs: Conscious, Creative and Compassionate. Through lecture and discussion, the Master Class will explore the trends and shifts taking place that are changing how we develop lasting solutions for a livable future.
Offered through the Presidio Center for Professional Development, or PresidioPRO, our Master Classes are interactive university-styled lectures by respected global field builders and thought leaders. Participants who register for the Master Class will receive instructions on how to prepare for the session.
