Abstract

Many universities teach programs in sustainable energy, but should they be incorporating theories and practice of sustainability across many disciplines? This chapter proposes the argument that institutes of higher education should be primary vehicles of change in our transition towards a sustainable future. It discusses that this can occur at the institutional and curriculum level. Two case studies are presented; integrating concepts of sustainability within a biomedical discipline area and assessing the impact of a College waste recycling program.
