Education for Sustainable Development 2009
Sustainable development and global citizenship, and their role in higher education, will be discussed at this year’s ‘Education for Sustainable Development: Graduates as Global Citizens’ conference.
The conference, held on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 September by BU’s Centre for Global Perspectives, will serve as an excellent platform to meet educators, academics and managers in the field of sustainable development and development education to share ideas, viewpoints and knowledge.
Topics to be covered will include:
Chris Shiel, Director of the Centre for Global Perspectives said: “For UK students to compete in the global economy, universities have to ensure that they develop a broader understanding of global issues, that they appreciate the inter-connected nature of global concerns and the importance of developing cross- cultural capability.
“As empowered global citizens, with an understanding of the importance of corporate social responsibility, these businessmen and women of the future can be a positive influence on the role of business in society.”
Attendance to the conference, being held at BU’s Talbot Campus, costs £250 (including VAT) which covers admission to all sessions, refreshments and dinner on Thursday evening.
The Centre for Global Perspectives has arranged special conference rates at the Marsham Court Hotel (£49 for single occupancy) and Ramada (£59 for single occupancy) in Bournemouth.
