Sustainable citizens, people who can apply their knowledge and skills to global sustainability challenges, are increasingly in demand. Employers, professional bodies, students and the public recognise the need for everyone to have greater understanding of our impact on the planet and the skills to alleviate it.

This symposium with consider how we embed Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into our Teaching and Learning practices, so that students become sustainable citizens.  

The symposium, via keynotes, oral presentations and workshops, will bring together experts in Sustainability and Education for Sustainable Development, alongside practitioners from the sector, to share the latest ideas, initiatives and best practice.

A call for papers will open in October.

Symposium aims

The aims of this symposium are to:

  • provide an open and supportive environment within which to share and discuss contemporary practice and initiatives in teaching and learning; and
  • provide evidence-informed examples and ideas for university staff and students to address current challenges in higher education.

Who should attend?

This symposium is aimed at academic and professional staff, students, programme leaders and senior leaders who wish to learn about the latest sustainability innovations and showcase their own initiatives. Students are also invited to present and attend, and we would be delighted to see a strong student presence at the event.
