Student Attitudes and Skills for Sustainable Development

14 June 2012

The HEA & NUS have just published the second report on Student Attitudes and Skills for Sustainable Development.  The findings reinforce, and in many ways strengthen, the landmark key outcomes of the first study published in 2011.  Headlines include:

Over two thirds of 2011 first and second-year respondents, as in 2010 (70%), believe that sustainability should be covered by their university.
There is a continued preference among students for a reframing of curriculum content rather than additional content or courses.
Two-thirds of respondents would sacrifice £1000 from their salary to work in a responsible company.
