Abstract:

The event intends to foster debate on the relevance of social responsibility (SR) and sustainability maturity integration in higher education institutions (HEIs) for sustainable development goals to be achieved. Several contributions are expected.

  • First, the variables that impact on the effectiveness of responsibility teaching, and the criteria for the identification, description, and categorisation of the maturity of SR/sustainability in higher education institutions will be discussed.
  • Second, the challenge of developing innovative teaching formats and measuring teaching effectiveness will be debated.
  • Third, how academia executives and policymakers may derive policy indications for the enhancement of the university system and the development of policies, that would facilitate HEIs embracing Education for Sustainable Development all over the world, will be discussed.
