The challenges faced by society today and in the future suggest it is vital that graduates are equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience that will enable them to make a positive contribution to sustainable development. Universities and colleges clearly have an important role to play in ensuring their students experience an education that maximises their opportunities to develop such a skill set. Students themselves are also increasingly understanding the links between employability and sustainability skills and their need to maximise opportunities for both.
If you would like to connect with other professionals interested in this area of sustainability, join SHED - the leading cross sector Community of Practice in the UK for Education for Sustainability (EfS). This group is open to all. Find out more.
EAUC-Scotland has two Education for Sustainable Development Topic Support Networks (TSNs) which are open to all, one for further and one for higher education. Each provide an opportunity for those working in or with the further and higher education sector to share ideas and questions and to get together to hear from particular speakers or discuss topics of interest. Find out more about the TSNs here.
