Call for papers: "Progress in Higher Education Curriculum for Sustainability"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Higher Education and Sustainability.

Sustainability is a multidisciplinary discipline of study, research and practice. It is defined in the Brundtland report as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. The three core pillars of sustainability are the environment, society and economy. Recently, more than one important pillar was incorporated – the institutional pillar.
Today, the application of higher education curriculum for sustainability is a relatively new phenomenon and a great challenge. This special issue will focus on progress in higher education curriculum for sustainability.
