Transatlantic Symposium on Sustainable Development: North American and European Perspectives on Sustainability in Higher Education
The scientific, cultural and diplomatic relations between Europe and its partners in North America are very strong. From a scientific point of view, this long lasting cooperation has been taking place across a wide range of areas. This also includes the field of sustainability, where North America and Europe are working hand in hand, seeking solutions to the many regional and global problems currently being faced.
Against this background and in order to cater for a wide discussion on the contribution of higher education institutions from both sides of the Atlantic, towards a more sustainable future, the "Transatlantic Symposium on Sustainable Development: North American and European Perspectives on Sustainability in Higher Education" is being organised.
As the title suggests, the Symposium will provide an opportunity for North American and European sustainability experts to meet, present their work, interact and network. As a long-lasting documentation of their works, the experiences from the presenters will be documented and promoted in the book "North American and European Perspectives on Sustainability in Higher Education", to be published by Springer Nature. This is part of the World Sustainability Series, the leading peer-reviewed book series on matters related to sustainable development. All submitted papers will be subject to the standard peer-review procedures.
The Symposium is an unprecedented event, mobilising the scientific communities in North America and in Europe working on matters related to sustainable development in higher education, in a way never seen before.
