Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Application Deadline: August 15, 2012

Expressions of interest are now being requested for the book, Sustainability Practices in Higher Education Institutions: Mapping Trends and Good Practice at Universities around the World, which unites the theory and practice of sustainable development at higher education institutions. The volume will be edited by Walter Leal Filho, Ulisses Azeiteiro, Sandra Caeiro, and Charbel Jabbour. The aim of this book is to address the current sustainability practices and guidelines applied in higher education institutions. 

The first chapters will introduce current sustainability assessment methodologies and the role of universities in promoting sustainability. Subsequent chapters will present several international examples of sustainability assessment tools specifically developed for higher education institutions. Other integrated tools not specifically developed for universities will also be discussed, like the ecological footprint, corporate social responsibility, sustainability reporting, and Global Reporting Initiative Guidelines. A final chapter will discuss the current status of environmental and sustainability practices in higher education institutions and outline future prospects

Expressions of interest should relate to primary research initiatives and projects, or revision of the state of the art, which can be formulated as book chapters in a relatively short time. They should entail a 200 words abstract with all contact data from the authors. Please send them by August 15, 2012 to: scaeiro@uab.pt and ulisses@uab.pt.
