Projects by theme :: 'Sustainability'

Integration of university careers and volunteering services, curriculum provision and local voluntary organisations

This project aims to identify the opportunities for students to develop sustainability skills (promoting community cohesion, environmental sustainability and organisational social responsibility) in volunteering activities and work placement, as well as in aspects of the curriculum that support and accredit the development of these skills. The project will involve partnership working between the London Met student volunteering service (‘Reach’), the Department of Applied Social Sciences and local voluntary organisations in the social and environmental sectors. It aims to produce a report analysing the sustainability skills valued by voluntary sector employers, and best practice guidelines on how to develop these skills.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

The Subject Centre received funding via the Higher Education Academy to explore ways in which our subject communities may be able to contribute towards HEFCE's Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) agenda. Each participant submitted a short article on what ESD means to his or her experience of teaching languages, linguistics or area studies.
