Symposium on Sustainability in the Curriculum and Operations of Universities in Brazil

Mon, 5 May 2025 – Tue, 6 May 2025
Federal University of Uberlândia, Uberlândia, Brazil

Sustainability in the curriculum and operations of universities in Brazil is a growing trend, reflecting the global emphasis on addressing environmental challenges. Many universities offer degrees specifically focused on sustainability, such as environmental science, sustainable 
development, and renewable energy. Also, sustainability topics are integrated into a variety of disciplines, from engineering and architecture to business and social sciences. Moreover, many universities have established research centers dedicated to sustainability, focusing on issues like climate change, biodiversity, and sustainable urban planning. As a growing trend, student groups often lead sustainability initiatives on campus, organising events, workshops, and awareness campaigns. From the operations side, many universities are investing in energy-efficient buildings and renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and wind turbines. Comprehensive recycling programmes and waste reduction strategies are being implemented to minimize the environmental footprint of universities. There are also other measures which include rainwater harvesting, efficient irrigation systems, and water recycling.

There is a perceived need for events which may cater for in-depth discussions about how universities in Brazil are implementing sustainability in their curriculum and operations. It is against this background that the "Symposium on Sustainability in the Curriculum and Operations of Universities in Brazil" is being organised. The Symposium aims to provide a platform for researchers and educators engaged with sustainability education and operations, to exchange their knowledge and perspectives through a face-to-face event to be held at the Federal University of Uberlândia, in Brazil.
