Background

Call for papers

Saturday, 4 April, 2020 - 12:08

Submit for special issue of Sustainability journal.

'Sustainability' journal has issued a call for submissions for a special issue on "What Is the University Doing to Train Future Professionals in the Sustainable Development Goals? Innovative Educational Methods, Research and Challenges."

The international Open Access journal, which aims to provide an advanced forum for research findings in areas related to sustainability and sustainable development, issued the following:

In 2015 the UN published the 2030 Agenda, a plan of action with 17 goals. These goals are the path to build a more democratic, equitable and sustainable world which must be addressed over the next 15 years, from the governments, as well as public institutions and civil society.The University has a key role in this path toward the constructions of new societies. In addition to generating knowledge, it is also responsible for training future professionals within the framework of sustainability. It is essential in order to face the problems and consequences of the profound, current environmental crises. The focus of this Special Issue is to show what has been done in the University to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals over the first five years after the announcement of the 2030 Agenda. Research centred on innovative educational methods, assessment tools and the remaining challenges for the integration of SDGs in higher education will be of particular interest. This special issue hopefully serves as an inspiration for much needed further initiatives in this field.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
