Social Sustainability Colloquium: Integrating Social and Environmental Sustainability: Applied anthropology projects in the Nepalese Himalaya and the Great Basin
Friday, April 16, 2010 - 1:00pm to Friday, April 16, 2010 - 3:00pm

WHAT: Over the past few decades, ‘sustainability' has been divided into different types, such as social, environmental, economic, and so on. These two applied anthropology projects aim to holistically connect aspects of social and environmental sustainability to applied research. The first is among the Khumbu Sherpa inside the protected area that houses Mount Everest and the second engages Nuwuvi (Southern Paiute and Chemehuevi) and public lands in the southern Great Basin, U.S.A. Both projects address sustainability as a merging of desired social and environmental outcomes identified in participatory ways. Facilitated by Jeremy Spoon, PSU Anthropology.
