3rd World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities (WSSD-U-2016)

Aims of the symposium

Consistent with the goals of the WSSD-U series, the aims of the “3rd World Symposium on Sustainable Development  at Universities” (WSSD-U-2016) are as follows:

  • to provide universities all around the world with an opportunity to display and present their works (i.e.  curriculum innovation, research, activities, practical projects) as they relate to education for sustainable development at university level;
  • to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of projects, from successful initiatives and good practice;
  • to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the topic of sustainable development in the curriculum of universities;
  • to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences available today. To this purpose, a set of peer reviewed and fully indexed books will be published, with all accepted papers. These  will be part of the award-winning  “World Sustainability Series”, published by Springer, one of the world´s top five scientific publishers.

Profile of Participants

Delegates attending the 3rd World Symposium on Sustainable Development  at Universities” (WSSD-U-2016) will come from a cross-sectoral range of areas. They are:
