Editorial Reviews


"At a time when universities are struggling to introduce sustainability literacy across the curriculum, this is a most timely book that provides much needed, practical insights into how this can be done." – Professor Patricia Broadfoot, CBE, Chair UUK/Guild HE Sustainability Task Group

"Higher education has a critically important role in orienting teaching and learning towards ensuring a sustainable future for all, and producing graduates who can make a positive difference. Yet, to date, substantial challenges remain with regard to rethinking and renewing curricula and pedagogies in many universities. This book addresses this problem - and opportunity - and in turn, challenges, guides and inspires its readers. We are very happy to commend it as a significant and timely contribution to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development."UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development Secretariat, UNESCO

"The book provides practical material for those who want to go beyond the traditional disiciplinary boundaries to integrate new content, methods and to link with other disciplines."GreenTeacher.org

"This book opens up the minds of the educationalists and policy makers in the West on the concept of sustainable development."Dr. Vaidehi Nathan, Organiser Weekly

"Sustainability Education...is a well researched and written book, with commendable aims."EsCalate

"Sustainability Education is a terrific book, which should be in the personal library of every university President and Senior Administration."Dr. Karen Hurley, Sessional Instructor, School of Environmental Studies, University of Victoria, Canada

"This comprehensive and scholarly volume opens a window to sustainability practices in higher education institutions across the United Kingdom...the book provides valuable global perspectives on a topic that connects educators across national boundaries."Diversity and Democracy

"Sustainability Education
is an important contribution to a discourse that is certain to grow rapidly in the years ahead." – Stephen. M. Wheeler, Journal of Planning Education and Research, Sage Publications.
