Sustainability: What’s in a word? • Sustainability? Sustainable Development? • Sustainability Education? Global Citizenship? • Global Perspectives? • Education for Sustainable Development? • Education for Sustainability? • Q. What are your definitions? • Q. Do we need a definition?
What is sustainable development? “Development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” Brundtland Commission, 1987 ‘Our Common Future’
Education for Sustainable Development • Lack of a universally agreed definition • “ESD allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future” (UNESCO) • UNESCO areas of emphasis: • Improving access and retention in quality basic education • Reorienting existing educational programmes to address sustainability • Increasing public understanding and awareness of sustainability • Providing training
Education for Sustainable Development • Gender Equality • Health Promotion • Sustainable Lifestyles • Peace & Human Security • Water • Sustainable Urbanisation • UNESCO themes: • Biodiversity • Climate Change Education • Cultural Diversity • Indigenous Knowledge • Disaster Risk Reduction • Poverty Reduction

HEI approaches to sustainability • Through ESD or as part of wider institutional change? • A uniform approach? • No two HEIs are the same • Approach adopted is contextualised by the institution
‘A University that improves the present whilst enhancing the ability of future generations to responsibly meet their own needs’ What is a ‘Sustainable University’? Kemp, 2013
Developing your HEI approach to sustainability • Write down the top 3 priorities for your HEI • How does ‘ESD’ fit into those priorities? • How does ‘Institution-wide Sustainability’ fit into those priorities? • What are your greatest challenges in reaching your vision? • Use these priorities and challenges in your team sessions throughout Green Academy – although they will remain fluid
Mapping our initiative • Facilitator: Helen May
Objectives of this session • To help your team identify and express creatively your view of the initiative during planning process. • To reflect on your initiative – its history, progress and future direction. • To surface different understandings or perspectives about the initiative within the team. • To develop a common understanding as to what your initiative is seeking to achieve. • To help overview your initiative to others. • To have fun.
Background to Rich Pictures • Rich pictures were originally developed as part of Soft Systems Methodology for gathering information about a complex situation and identifying multiple viewpoints. • The methodology was developed in 1960-70s by Peter Checkland and his students at Lancaster University. • Rich pictures were proposed at the beginning of the process and seen as an iterative process of understanding and refining that understanding. • Originally constructed by interviewing people.
From the start up meeting….Selling your initiative to others • On one of the shapes, in teams please write one or two compelling sentences that represent your initiative to one of the following target audiences: • Students • Academic staff • Senior managers • Consider • What makes an effective ‘strapline’? • What makes an effective ‘strapline’ for that particular audience?
