Educators must take a lead in sustainability so that our graduates can be encouraged and supported to promote sustainable practices in their chosen career. This can primarily be achieved by fostering education for sustainability in all our qualifications and by re-visioning and changing our approach to teaching and learning to model a transformative context for all learners. As a consequence sustainable practice becomes a context and a process for learning and recognised as a core capability within each discipline. Our goal is that every graduate may think and act as a “sustainable practitioner”.
