World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities

The World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities has extended an invitation to submit expressions of interest to take part in a followup event to the 2012 Rio de Janeiro symposium. The gathering will be held in Qatar on 28-30 January, 2014, with aims to:

i. to provide universities all round the world with an opportunity to display and
present their works (i.e. curriculum innovation, research, activities, practical
projects) as they relate to education for sustainable development at university
level;

ii. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the
execution of projects, from successful initiatives and good practice;

iii. to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the topic
of sustainable development in the curriculum of universities;

iv. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities
for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further goal will be to document and disseminate the wealth
of experiences available today.  To this purpose, the book “Transformative approaches to
sustainable development across disciplines” will be published, with all accepted papers.
This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Environmental Education,
Communication and Sustainability” (Peter Lang Scientific Publishers), which since
its creation in 1998 has become the world´s longest running book series on
education and  communication on sustainable development.
