We are delighted to announce the next CA Conference which will take place on 3 October 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic. Our host is Charles University, one of the oldest universities in Europe and a core partner of CA.

This international Conference is taking place in the year the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD, 2005-14) comes to an end and the Global Action Programme on ESD is taking shape. The Conference will review major trends and changes in higher education towards sustainability over the last ten years, with an emphasis on whole-of-institution approaches, curriculum change, university educators, ESD competences and quality enhancement. A state of the art report which maps existing ESD professional development opportunities for university educators in Europe will be presented at the event. This report has been developed as part of a newly funded European project entitled University Educators for Sustainable Development (UE4SD) coordinated by CA. Most CA members are partners of UE4SD and will be attending a project annual meeting on the previous day.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Ms Bianca Bilgram (Rep of the Bureau of the UNECE Strategy for ESD and Head the Secretariat UN DESD of the German Commission for UNESCO, Germany); Prof Gerd Michelsen (UNESCO Chair in HE for SD, Germany); Dr Jana Dlouhá (Researcher at Charles University, Czech Republic); Ms Lenka Parkánová (President of Oikos International, Switzerland/Czech Republic); Dr Clemens Mader (CA Vice-President, Germany); Mr Doug Parkin (Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, UK); and, Prof Daniella Tilbury (CA President and Chair of the UNESCO M&E Group for the DESD, UK).

For further information, abstract submissions and registration details please refer to the Conference website. Please note that CA members can enjoy one free place at the Conference (including refreshments and sustainable lunches).

We hope to you see you in October!
