ABSTRACT: In the context of the recent UN decade of ESD it is worth asking how sustainability and development are articulated in MSc programs in curriculum and by faculty and students. This educational case study gathered data from multiple programs across the UK to analyse the current landscape of strong and weak approaches to sustainable development at this level. This seminar addresses early insights from survey responses, faculty interviews and curriculum analysis.
