Abstract

Higher Education Institutions have a vital role to ensure the next generation are equipped within the knowledge and skills to adapt to a changing global landscape and participate in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals. In Queen’s University Belfast, staff and postgraduate students developed ‘Pathways for Sustainability’ to (a) gain insights into participants’ understandings and experiences of sustainability; (b) to generate data on potential content and delivery methods for an online programme about sustainability and SDGs. Our presentation explores findings from six focus groups with 50 staff and students, illustrating differing perspectives between staff and students on sustainability education and training.
