Abstract [en]

At the Rio + 20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 it was decided that education for sustainable development (ESD) will be promoted more actively beyond the UN Decade of ESD (2005-2014). Integrating ESD into the management system could be a way to ensure that it will be integrated throughout the university system because quality assurance is compulsory, which ESD is not. A process model for enhancing ESD with management systems was developed and compared with drivers and barriers for enhancing ESD and for implementing management systems, and piloted. The process includes planning, assessment, monitoring and implementation of ESD, by which sustainability aspects have been identified. Examples of relevant sustainability aspects in different disciplines in Norden are provided. It was found that sustainability aspects could be identified for many fields, which indicates that the process model could be used as a tool in universities’ management systems, for enhancing ESD.
