Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium REWAS 2022: Coupling Metallurgy and Sustainability: An EPD Symposium in Honor of Diran Apelian
Presentation Title New Approaches for Implementing and Teaching Sustainability
Author(s) Carol A. Handwerker
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Carol A. Handwerker
Abstract Scope Research in sustainable materials is often focused on R&D alone, without paying much attention to how to convince people to incorporate them into products and how to create the supply chains needed for their widespread use. In this talk I’ll describe a path forward for this scenario and how similar community building concepts might translated into teaching sustainability principles in Capstone Senior Design Courses. The concepts are based on the work of Dr. Elinor Ostrom (2009 Nobel Laureate in Economics) who laid out a framework for how people and organizations develop voluntary, community-based solutions involving adaptive, self-governing systems that effectively manage common pool resources without the need for government regulations or privatization. I’ll present examples where this has been applied, including creating a circular economy for hard disk drives. We will discuss how these concepts can be applied to create a university community to incorporate sustainability into Senior Design Courses.
