Engineering Education for Sustainable Development EESD13

September 22 – 25, 2013. Cambridge, uk.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS (abstract deadline 18th January)

 

The theme of this conference, the 6th in the series, will be ‘Rethinking the Engineer’.

The conference will address the following questions:

 

The Conference will explore how to develop the new skills needed by engineers so they can be more effective in dealing with messy problems in an increasingly complex and constrained world. A key theme will also be to reflect on how successful graduates who have received a sustainable development education have been in their subsequent working lives, as well as how useful their wider approach has been to their employers. The conference is the premiere forum for the dissemination of new advances in the evolution of sustainable development thinking in young engineers and will bring together students, academics, graduates and practicing engineers to rethink the professional engineer’s role and responsibilities in modern society.

 

Special sessions will be presented and we particularly invite papers on the following:

 

  • Social Justice in EESD: Challenges Opportunities and Best Practices
  • Water/Energy/Food  Nexus Education for EESD
  • Alternative pedagogies for ESD: Practice Based Learning (PBL), Learning Through Service (LTS), Engineering by Doing (EBD)
  • Education for Sustainable Development at Universities in South America
  • A special session in celebration of Leo Jansen who sadly passed away earlier in 2012

A selection of papers which are accepted for the Conference will be published in the following peer reviewed Journals: i. Cleaner Production, ii The International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education and iii Engineering Sustainability.
