Georgina has worked with determination, patience and passion to encourage colleagues and students both within her own institution and throughout the sector to see sustainable development as the purpose and responsibility of HE, thus providing an imperative for education for sustainable development (ESD).
The result of her work has been to combat a sense of lack of relevance of ESD and to achieve meaningful engagement by academics with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Communication and inclusivity are key to Georgina’s approach to progressing ESD and she believes that true ESD must be delivered according to the values of partnership represented in the UN SDGs.
As such, Georgina ensures that staff and students from all parts of the university are part of ESD planning, delivery and evaluation. Her communications and events are designed to ensure relevance and accessibility to all constituents of the academics’ community.
