The biggest impact universities can have on the future of our planet is through approaches that equip graduates with the skills they need to actively contribute to economic, social and environmental sustainability in all facets of life. This can be achieved through active participatory learning, creation of shared experiences and the development of a collective vision of sustainability, which ultimately will help reshape the world. Macquarie offers a range of avenues to up-skill its community to motivate, equip and involve people in reflecting on how they currently live and work. Macquarie’s skills-for-sustainability initiatives aim to go beyond individual behaviour change or single actions, instead seeking to implement systemic change within the University, its community, and society at large.
Macquarie addresses both formal and informal skill development. The Learning and Teaching Plan has sustainability amongst its core values, and is considered a principle and enabler that will guide the implementation of Macquarie’s values. The programs and practices of the University reflect a commitment to sustainability in the University’s social, physical and cultural environments. This commitment is demonstrated through our: Graduate Capabilities Framework; People, Planet and Participation Units; various sustainability training and engagement initiatives; and specific sustainability courses.
