Speciel issue call for papers - Integrative sustainability education: emerging concepts and approaches

Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences

 

Sustainability challenges are complex and entail closely interlinked elements that span across disciplines, actors from all parts of society (citizens, NGOs, companies, local to national governments, intergovernmental initiatives,...), scales (local to global), etc. Higher education institutions play a critical role in tackling these challenges. Research on sustainability challenges and solutions as well as the management of higher education institutions for more sustainable operations have already received a lot of attention in the scientific arena. Education of students has so far received less attention. Although sustainability pedagogy and specific skills and learning outcomes for individual courses are increasingly being represented, the scientific literature still lacks depth in analyzing how to teach integrative skills. For this special issue, we encourage authors to consider the following dimensions of integration:

 

  • Sustainability in educational programming
  • Student population
  • Co-curricular activities
  • Institutional level
  • Disciplines/Stakeholder engagement
  • Sustainability issues/challenges

 

Deadline: 15 December 2021

Call for Submissions

Global Social Challenges Journal

 

How can we re-imagine society in an era of climate change, pandemic, hunger, poverty and other pressing global societal challenges? Significant threats and dangers lie ahead of us, but so do opportunities. This new fully open access, not for profit journal aims to facilitate thinking about these positive new trajectories and become the journal of choice to address the complexities of global social challenges across disciplines. The Global Social Challenges Journal will be the first such journal to be based in the social sciences, whilst engaging with research from humanities, arts and STEM. It will be an important home for research that contributes to the creation of alternative futures that are socially and environmentally just and sustaining.
