Target Audience: Any staff involved in learning and teaching 

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) empowers people to change the way they think and work towards a sustainable future. These skills and competencies need to be embedded in every graduate from our University, and so through our ESD working group and the Centre for Sustainable Development, we want to ensure we support and equip the staff at Strathclyde with the skills, tools and inspiration they need to mainstream sustainable development across all of our teaching and learning.  

Training will be delivered by Engineers Without Borders UK – and is specifically designed for all Faculties.
