The RMIT University Strategic Plan to 2020 drives RMIT’s mission to create transformative experiences for our students and get them ready for life and work. Sustainability is embedded in this strategy, which harnesses RMIT’s capabilities in research, teaching and innovation to create an impact on individual lives and broader society.
For this reason, RMIT aims to integrate sustainability into course curricula, professional development and learning experiences. Education for Sustainability (EfS) is defined as “An approach to education, teaching and learning that prepares people to cope with, think critically about, and shape social, economic, political and ecological conditions characterised by change, uncertainty, risk and complexity” (Stevenson, Davis, Ferreira & Evans, 2012, p.3). This symposium looks at Sustainability in Learning and Teaching through the twin lens’ of Education for Sustainability (EfS) and Education about Sustainability (EaS).
