Accelerating the Implementation of Sustainable Development in the Curriculum Symposium
September 10 - September 11
Despite the fact that teaching on sustainable development is important, and that it may prove instrumental for future oriented action and for a sustainable society, there is at present a need to strengthen and accelerate the initiatives from higher education institutions in this key area. It is against this background that the Symposium “Accelerating the Implementation of Sustainable Development in the Curriculum” is being organized by the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Program, the World Sustainable Development Research and Training Centre, the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, and the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) in cooperation with a number of institutions of higher education active in this field. It will involve teaching professionals in the field of sustainable development in the widest sense, from business and economics, to arts and fashion, administration, engineering, environment, languages and media studies.
