5th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education
Higher Education's Commitment to Sustainability: from Understanding to Action
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC)
23 - 25 November 2010

Presentation

The 5th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education launches a Call for Good Practices. The call seeks examples of experiences taking place on the ground that incorporate sustainability into the curriculum, research, and institutional management at post-secondary levels, both in a local and international sphere. Consequently, GUNI is not looking for conceptual papers but experiences linked to the sustainable actions of higher education institutions.


This Call for Good Practices offers an exciting and unique opportunity for every sector of higher education to join and to demonstrate how higher education institutions can lead the way to a sustainable future.



Call for Good Practices - Round I


Dates: 18 December 2010 to 15 June 2010 


The selected good practices submitted during Round I will be selected either for presentation at the 5th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education or for poster presentation at the poster sessions and the on-line poster gallery. 



Call for Good Practices - Round II 


Dates: 16 June 2010 to 31 August 2010


The selected good practices submitted during Round II will be selected for poster presentation at the poster sessions and the on-line poster gallery of the 5th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education.



Practices of sufficient quality of both rounds will also be included in the next GUNI Report Higher Education in the World 4.
