UC San Diego Extension and San Diego Gas & Electric partner on sustainability course

Introduction to Sustainability offered at San Diego Gas & Electric's new Energy Innovation Center

UC San Diego Extension and SDG&E have partnered this fall in offering Introduction to Sustainability. The course will be held at the new Energy Innovation Center in Kearny Mesa, where students will have access to hands-on technology and innovative sustainable products.  Thanks to the generous underwriting contributions of SDG&E, the fall quarter class will be offered at a significantly reduced price of only $215.

For the past three years, Risa Baron, course instructor and SDG&E Outreach Manager, has been teaching the class in both online and live formats.  Her real world experiences have been helping students understand the implications of sustainable practices in business.

Since the first course offering just three years ago, more than 350 students have  learned the foundations of environmental sustainability.  The application of knowledge learned varies with each student, whether teacher, financial analyst or entrepreneur, but the bottom line is that every job is a green job.  Having a thorough understanding of the short and long-term implications of sustainability is good for business, as well as one's career.
