Regenerative Study Abroad with Antonio Gutiérrez Pérez
Studying abroad is an incredible resource to open people’s eyes and minds, but we can always improve - and will need to update - our methods of delivering study abroad experiences. Antonio Gutiérrez Pérez shares his ideas on how we need to change study abroad for the better through regenerativity. Previously on the CANIE podcast, we've discussed what "regenerativity" means in theory, but what does it mean in practice? This episode features Antonio Gutiérrez Pérez, Head at Celei Regenerative Education, who talks about his approach to regeneration at Celei and how international educators can holistically apply regenerative practices to create the most impactful experiences for students.

Collaborating with Sustainability Offices for Success
Join CANIE co-host Amy Marcus for a conversation with Suzanne Willever and Rebecca Collins, who share with us all about their collaboration across departments at Temple University. Over the past few years, Suzanne and Rebecca have worked together to bridge the gap between education abroad and sustainability, organizing events, funding student learning opportunities, educating the campus community, and partnering with the local community. Along the way, they’ve forged not only a productive working relationship but a supportive friendship. They provide their biggest takeaways from their time working together, plus tips and tricks for collaborating with the office of sustainability on your own campus - and even where to find resources if your campus doesn’t have its own dedicated sustainability office.
