University Educators for Sustainable Development (UE4SD)
The Centre for Sustainable Business is a partner in a three-year project that builds upon the work of COPERNICUS Alliance and seeks to give continuity to the People´s Sustainability Treaty on Higher Education launched at Rio+20.
The project will be co-led by a steering group composed by the University of Gloucestershire (lead organisation, UK), Charles University (Czech Republic), Leuphana University (Germany) and the University Autónoma of Madrid (Spain).
The project involves the creation of a thematic academic network with a minimum of 25 EU member states. The Network will work in partnership to map opportunities for university-educators to develop Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) competences through professional development. It will (i) identify and capture leading practice in the areas of ESD competences and professional development in universities, (ii) edit a publication highlighting innovative case studies, (iii) produce an online database of resources, and (iv) frame and trial a sustainability in higher education professional development and networking platform
