UE4SD - University Educators for Sustainable Development
The UE4SD Consortium of 52 partners from 33 countries across Europe is seeking to re-orient the higher education curriculum to address sustainable development. The 3 year-project, will focus on support for teaching colleagues, to enable them to prepare students, regardless of their courses or specialisation, to understand and apply their professional and global responsibilities in sustainability. The project includes plans for university staff to develop professional competences and the academic leadership capabilities linked to Education for Sustainable Development.
UE4SD seeks to establish a leading expert group in Education for Sustainable Development in higher education in Europe and will create a platform to combine and share the expertise of network partners so that they can inform policy and practice well beyond the life of the project. Its activities are closely associated with COPERNICUS Alliance – the European Network of Higher Education for Sustainable Development.
