EwS 2018 is the first in a series of international interdisciplinary conferences that will focus on the challenges facing all aspects of education, teaching for a sustainable future.

The event will address not only the challenges but also the opportunities for educators as we will have to weave the golden thread of sustainability into all aspects of the teaching curriculum.

EwS 2018 conference will draw together national and international educators in focused paper sessions with thought provoking key note speakers and opportunities for academic staff and researchers to participate in training workshops.
We will shortly invite national and international educators and researchers to submit papers on a range of themes including;

  • Teaching for future generations – Multidisciplinary projects in sustainable development
  • The pedagogy of sustainability in higher education, the international perspective
  • Systems Learning and Sustainability – how to go beyond problems
  • Education and outreach with communities – culture and conflict resolution
  • Effective communication – The sustainable conversation!
  • Education beyond colleges – What higher education can learn from communities
  • Beyond linear education – How to overcome the challenge of teaching sustainability concepts

We will welcome submissions from new and experienced contributors and particularly encourage young educators at the early stages of their career to present to an audience and gain valuable insights in a positive and supportive environment.
