Product Description

* Charts the present and future of higher education and the sustainability agenda
* International in scope - the contributors are distinguished academics and active researchers from the UK, the US and Australia
* Essential reading for academics, policy-makers in higher education and sustainable development, higher education authorities and students

In higher education, sustainable development has its supporters and detractors. It is embraced by some individuals and departments and perceived by others as a threat to the coherence of particular disciplines. It is not a subject in its own right although there are signs that this may now be happening.
This book analyses the impact of the concepts and practices of sustainability and sustainable development on various academic disciplines, institutional practices, fields of study and methods of inquiry. The authors examine the purpose of the modern university and the nature of sustainable education. They explore links to social movements for sustainability, approaches to environmental management, new pedagogies, sustainability projects, curriculum change, culture and biodiversity, values relating to gender equality and global responsibility and case studies on the transformation or otherwise in specific disciplines.
