Universities are central parts of the sustainability agenda in at least two ways:
This working group will examine how universities across Europe are engaging with sustainability agendas and the different types of the relationships between concepts of sustainability, management, staff and students.
As an introductory and grounding exercise, the group will try to pull a list of topics together that the members find most pressing, inspiring or provoking related to the university and sustainability challenges. Linked to this list of topics we will develop a list of key references both of an academic nature and also drawing from a broader spectrum of policy, art, movies or things that tickle our interest.
We will be able to present tentative insights from this bringing together of insights and pressing topics at the December workshop.
Yet unidentified, but we would like to get in contact with both local, national and European higher level university leaders in order to understand their thoughts on this topic.
