Further and Higher Education and the Sustainable Development Goals
The seventeen SDGs present a novel framework for domestic and global pursuit of sustainability solutions. Our Further and Higher Education institutions have a key role to play in developing scholarship and skills to critically engage with the SDGs and the wider sustainability agenda.A recent consultation examined how education in schools might consider the SDGs, but the tertiary sector presents additional complexities. Some universities and colleges already have initiatives addressing the SDGs, in research, teaching and operations; and students, policy makers and many academics have called for more sustainability in tertiary education. How might we deepen sustainability education in the tertiary sector? What role might the SDGs play? What might the outcomes be?
