Recycling & Waste Reduction

The integration of sustainability into university curricula enables students to cultivate knowledge surrounding the principles of interdependence of our society and life on our planet and the essential role of rights and responsibilities of each individual in a sustainable society. The current approach may foster students who, as graduates, are "poorly prepared to integrate the economic, environmental, cultural and social dimensions of their professions or to see opportunities in implementing sustainable practices." Sarah Holdsworth, Carina Wyborn, Sarah Bekessy and Ian Thomas. "Professional Development for Education for Sustainability: How advanced are Australian Universities?"
