The Economics Network has an active role in the Higher Education Academy's Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) initiative.


This places the initiative in the higher education policy context and describes the Economics Network's activities in the initiative, including the timeline.

Current Projects

We are seeking to support lecturers through a variety of ways, including mailing lists, workshops, interdisciplinary work, and resource audits.

Survey Results

As part of the Economics Network's activity in this area, several surveys have been conducted, both of lecturers and of students. Results are posted here and a link is included in the latest ESD Update whenever the page includes new information.

Teaching Resources

Although still auditing available resources in the sector, we do already have materials catalogued on our site to assist lecturers seeking to embed sustainable development in the curriculum.
