EAUC asks, rather naively it seems to me, whether universities are doing any work around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs], and it is working with a range of organisations, including the Regional Centres for Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs), Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability (ACTS), and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE),
"to develop an understanding of the work going on around the SDGs in Universities and Colleges, and how it can be better supported."
Examples, EAUC says, may be strategic, operational, academic, or in terms of wider engagement. Indeed they might. Answers on a postcard please to firstname.lastname@example.org . A large card will probably be needed as it is clear that institutions are doing a significant amount of work in relation to all this across a wide range of disciplines in terms of research, teaching and outreach – and have been doing so for some time.
Perhaps EAUC should really be asking why it is having to play catch-up on what is already a significant agenda.
