This workshop presentation is from the “Global Goals: Local Action” EAUC Annual Conference 2017, presented by Peter Rands, Director of Sustainability Development - Canterbury Christ Church University.

Learn about the range of methods to measure sustainability ‘literacy’ amongst our graduates and how best to embed such methods across the whole institution (not solely sustainability courses). 

This session reviewed work underway globally to measure values, skills, attitudes and knowledge for sustainability. It explored how to generate questions to measure progress in these areas which you can take back and apply in your university.

One way of measuring sustainability literacy is through the international Sustainability Literacy Test (SuLiTest) which will be demonstrated in the session.
