69 Building Green Minds: Exploring Opportunities for Cross-Faculty Education for Climate Change and Sustainable Development

Content description: Climate change challenges universities to implement scale-appropriate responses, pertinent due to wider effects stemming from the full range of university activities. Focusing on education specifically and addressing this in a manner that cuts across faculty and disciplinary distinctions, this session aims at knowledge exchange on experiences for facilitating the integration of climate change and sustainability, and generating solutions. It is prompted by the lifting-off of environmental initiatives at Aalborg University which includes both campus greening activities and university-wide enhancing of sustainable education. The session will be opened by experts and practitioners in the field.
