A report written by Ben Jongbloed & Anete Veidemane (Center for Higher Education Policy Studies)
This report summarizes the process, results and insights gained during the first work package of the DECODE Sustainability project. This evidence-based report is created with aim to shed more light on the question of how deans can embed sustainability and attention for sustainable development in their department’s education, research, and societal engagement portfolio.
As part of the foundation work done for the project, the DECODE Sustainability consortium led by CHEPS ran two surveys aiming to identify the opportunities and
obstacles that deans and academic staff face when embedding ‘sustainability’ and ‘sustainable development’ into their academic units (e.g. faculties, schools, departments). Gain insights on what the results reveal.
