Contributing Author to UN Report on Sustainable DevelopmentSeptember 2018
I have been selected to be a contributing author of the United Nations International Commission on Education for Sustainable-Development-Practice Report.
This UN report is issued every ten years to ‘define priorities in sustainable development education for the coming decade’. The 6000-word contribution will cover new research on changing implicit attitudes to sustainability and the need to build this into educational initiatives to close the ‘value-action’ gap when it comes to climate change. The commission is based in the Earth Institute, Columbia University, and is world-leading for its work on sustainable development.
There will be 40 contributing authors, both academics and practitioners, from across the globe, including the U.S., Australia, Europe, Nigeria, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc. selected to contribute to the final report.
