Symposium “Accelerating the Implementation of Sustainable Development in Campus Activities and Programmes”, La Coruna, Spain
02/12/2019 - 03/12/2019
It is widely known that matters related to sustainable development, albeit global in nature, are best handled at the local level. This line of thinking is particularly true to the higher education context, where the design and implementation of sustainability initiatives on campuses can demonstrate how a given university translates the principles of sustainable development into practice, at the institutional level.
It is against this background that the Symposium “Accelerating the Implementation of Sustainable Development in Campus Activities and Programmes” is being organised by the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme, the World Sustainable Development Research and Training Centre, the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, the University of A Coruña (UDC) and the European School of Sustainability Science and Research, in cooperation with a number of institutions of higher education active in this field. It will involve professionals in the field of sustainable development in the widest sense, from business and economics, to arts and fashion, administration, engineering, environment, languages and media studiess.
