To increase awareness and understanding of education for sustainable development and explore how to incorporate it for a sustainable society.
Have you ever wondered what Education for Sustainable Development is and how can we incorporate it?
This panel event aims to explore how we can achieve an educational practice that encourages change in knowledge, skills, values and attitudes, to enable a more sustainable and just society for all.
By including a panel of staff and students, we want to highlight the importance of collaborating among all community members in Higher Education as we aim to make education more sustainable.

Her research fields also include embodied teaching and learning. She will particularly focus on whiteness and the history of gunpowder, and how it critically relates to university investments.
