A Campus-Wide Approach to Generating Sustainability Leaders for the Future
Integration of SDGs across university wide curricula, in most cases, appears compartmentalized and lacking transdisciplinary perspective. University College Cork is reorienting curricula towards sustainability as priority number 1 of its Academic Strategy (2018-2022) which calls for the explicit integration of SDGs and involves not just transmitting knowledge about sustainability, but cultivating the mindset required for teaching staff to guide and equip students to address the critical challenges underpinning sustainable development. The project aims to provide equal access to ESD (Education for Sustainable Development), often limited through the informal curriculum, to foster the development of globally minded and action-oriented citizens who are empowered to develop innovative solutions for a sustainable future.
