 Call for Papers: World Symposium on Sustainability at Universities

Friday, 22 November 2013 14:49 Walter Leal


World Symposium on Sustainability at UniversitiesThe World Symposium on Sustainability at Universities (WSSD-U-2014), will be held in Manchester, UK on 3-5 September 2014. This will follow-up a highly successful event held in Rio de Janeiro last year, parallel to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).

With this Call for Papers, we are seeking contributions from suitably qualified academics, research groups and students working in the field of sustainable development as a whole, and concerned with research on sustainability, on curriculum greening and campus activities, in particular. This Call is also meant to engage colleagues undertaking practical initiatives and projects aimed at promoting sustainable development at universities, or where universities transfer information and know-how to developing countries. WSSD-U-2014 will also offer a good platform for those undertaking local, national and international projects, where it can be showcased how higher education institutions are putting the principles of sustainable development into practice.


WSSD-U-2014 will be no doubt a nice, international and high impact event in 2014, happening just a few weeks before the UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD) comes to a close. An output of WSSD-U-2014 will be the peer reviewed book “Transformative approaches to sustainable development at universities: working across disciplines” which will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Environmental Education, Communication and Sustainability” (Peter Lang Scientific Publishers), which since its creation in 1998 has become the world´s prime book series on education and communication on sustainable development. Interested people and organisations should submit a 200 word abstract as soon as possible, but no later than 30th January 2013. Further details WSSD-U-2014, including on how to submit an abstract and how to register can be seen at:
