institutions and educators need to do to effectively respond
to the fast changing global scenario?
How to successfully position academic institutions as one of the key leaders in creating a sustainable world – environmentally, socially and economically?
What competencies, capacities, abilities, skills and attitudes are increasingly in demand and will be the “must-haves” in the future?
How to engage young and adult learners in sustainable development?
These and many other fundamental questions need to be extensively discussed and answered to launch or to intensify our efforts for mainstreaming sustainability in education.
