Sustainable Development is not determined from the top down. We can envisage it as an individual and societal search and learning process by all members of society – aimed at shaping alternative pathways. A participatory process such as this requires all actors to possess the relevant knowledge and skills. Education for Sustainable Development is thus a key component of the educational mandate set by the canton of Bern – also for the university. The ESD-UniBe Team offers workshops, advice, materials, and networking to help teaching staff implement this important task.
Second Sustainability Day of Bern’s institutions of higher education
How do Bern’s Institutions of Higher Education contribute to sustainable development? How do they support the sustainability aims of businesses, society, and politics? What can they do to promote the UN 2030 Agenda? At their second joint Sustainability Day, the PHBern, the University of Bern, and the Bern University of Applied Sciences will highlight how they work with partners to create and implement innovations for sustainable development. Save the date: 1 November 2019, 9.15 am to 4 pm, at the vonRoll area in Bern.
