Sustainability and higher education design curricula


The necessity of implementing sustainability to higher education, and more specifically to the design curriculum has been widely recognised. While a number of universities and institutions worldwide have been, and are attempting to implement sustainability as a central component of the curricula, a number of issues remain.

Effective and cohesive implementation of sustainability to the higher education design curricula is indivisible from research and investigation of existing curricula on an international scale. This is the focus of Charlotte’s research and PhD project.
