BCIT staff are now invited to apply for the 2012 Pacific Spirit Project (PSP). This is the fifth year for the PSP, which was originally designed to help faculty incorporate sustainability themes and practices in their curriculum. Non-teaching staff who have an interest in a campus sustainability project can join now too.
The PSP is conducted over two days and one dinner, this year from June 4-6. The application deadline is May 25.
Anne Marie Webb-Hughes, School of Business program head for first year Marketing Management, and past participant in the PSP says:
“The Pacific Spirit Project was one of the most rewarding experiences I have encountered at BCIT. This two-day workshop exposed me to the realities of how our earth is endangered in more serious ways than I had previously understood. Our actions are threatening our very existence. In this workshop, I was inspired to read more, to see how I can make a difference, and most importantly, to realize how I can change my curriculum to bring sustainable practices to the business world for my students and for the companies that will employ them. Don’t miss this opportunity. It will change your mind…and then change your life.”
