Engineering Education for Sustainable Development EESD13

22 Sep 13 - 25 Sep 13


Location: Cambridge

The Conference will explore how to develop the new skills needed by engineers so they can be more effective in dealing with messy problems in an increasingly complex and constrained world. A key theme will also be to reflect on how successful graduates who have received a sustainable development education have been in their subsequent working lives, as well as how useful their wider approach has been to their employers.

A selection of papers which are accepted for the Conference will be published in the following peer reviewed Journals: i. Cleaner Production, ii The International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education and iii Engineering Sustainability.

The Conference will include sessions on:

  • Social Justice in EESD: Challenges Opportunities and Best Practices
  • Water/Energy/Food  Nexus Education for EESD
  • Alternative pedagogies for ESD: Practice Based Learning (PBL), Learning Through Service (LTS), Engineering by Doing (EBD)
  • Education for Sustainable Development at Universities in South America
  • A special session in celebration of Leo Jansen who sadly passed away earlier in 2012
