One of the major barriers to the wide incorporation of matters related to sustainable development at higher education institutions, is the fact that sustainability is seldom systematically embedded in the curriculum. Yet, proper provisions for curricular integration of sustainability issues at part of teaching programmes across universities is an important element towards curriculum greening. Despite the central relevance of this topic, not many events have specifically focused on identifying ways of how better teach about sustainability issues in a university context.
It is against this background that the “Symposium on Implementing Sustainability in the Curriculum of Universities: teaching approaches, methods, examples and case studies” is being organised by Manchester Metropolitan University, in cooperation with a number of institutions of higher education active in this field. It will involve researchers in the field of sustainable development in the widest sense, from business and economics, to arts and fashion, administration, environment, languages and media studies.
The Symposium will focus on the means to implement sustainable development in teaching programmes and will contribute to the further development of this central topic.
