Dear change agents in higher education for sustainable development,

The UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development is coming to its end and the new UN Global Action Programme on ESD is about to be launched.  In this context, we were pleased to invite you on board a new study project on The state of higher education for sustainable development, aiming at investigating critical factors supporting higher education institutions, NGOs and policy on how to scale and improve sustainability processes in the nexus of higher education institutions, society and policy.
The survey is now closed and responses are being analyzed and synthesized. The final report is to support higher education institutions’, policy’ and society’ decision-makers to develop and support appropriate mechanisms in order to foster sustainable development within their respective regional contexts.

The outcomes will be presented on behalf of all the participants at the UNESCO World Conference on ESD to take place in Aichi Nagoya in November in Japan.
