Students’ learning environments are formed through both the formal and informal curriculum as well as the ideas and practices demonstrated to them across their campus and within their community. We know that many institutions see ESD occurring in small pockets within this area. However, fostering a whole-institution approach to ESD is significantly more challenging.

This session shared engaging case studies from four universities whose work embedding ESD has been effective across all parts of their institution. Delegates left with a strong understanding of specific strategies and interventions which they can use within their own institutions.
