Special Issue Information
This Special Issue will focus on the need for sustainability in education, seeking methods of achieving holistic development by addressing the needs of future learners. Education provides competences, knowledge, values, and attitudes essential to ethical global development. The final report of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, titled "Shaping the Future We Want" [UN 2012], explicitly emphasizes the need for rigorous work in regard to developing education .
Sustainability in education incorporates cognitive, emotional, behavioural, and social, dimensions of pedagogy and learning environments, and development of course curriculum, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that promote sustainability in a holistic and transformative way. This is aligned with Goal#4, Goal#10, and Goal#12 of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) 2030, which aim to ensure lifelong learning and development .
This Special Issue welcomes all types of research on themes including (but not limited to) the following:
- Personality and sustainability;
- Digitisation and education;
- sustainability for future learners;
- HEIs and sustainable development;
- Lifelong learning and quality education;
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle in academia.
