We are pleased to announce that the ERASMUS Academic Network Project “University Educators for Sustainable Development (UE4SD)” was successfully submitted to the EACEA on the 31st of January. The project seeks to support the work of CA and was developed by a steering group composed by the University of Gloucestershire (lead organisation, UK), Charles University (Czech Republic), Leuphana University (Germany) and the University Autónoma of Madrid (Spain).
The project involves 55 higher education institutions, organisations and associations in 34 countries seeking pathways for progressing sustainability innovation in the HE curriculum. The partnership will map opportunities for university educators to develop ESD competences through professional development and identify how competences can be best developed to enhance quality academic practice in the area of sustainability. It will identify leading practice in this area in Europe and develop a publication and online platform of resources to support changes to curriculum development and academic provision in universities.
We would like to thank all CA members involved in this project for their invaluable support. We will know whether the project has been successful in the summer.
