Session Outline

Sustainability Literacy is the knowledge, skills, and mindsets that help compel an individual to become deeply committed to building a sustainable future and allow him or her to make informed and effective decisions to this end. For the first year, more than 300 universities from 34 countries registered to the Sustainability Literacy Test and almost 27000 students took the test. This session will be an opportunity to give delegates an update on the Test, how it was received at the UN conference in Nagoya, its current global reach and critically, how it is improving. The session will benefit from a first-hand experience of implementing the test at University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
