Sustainability Skills And The Workplace

Phrases such as ‘the circular economy’, ‘creating shared value’, ‘social responsibility’ and ‘negative externalities’ reflect growing company/organisational concerns around socio-environmental issues. On June 18th, 2014, the UoM Sustainability in the Curriculum Community of Practice (CoP) focussed on this theme discussing:

  • Circular Economy

    the understandings and skills graduates need to help develop the sustainability initiatives of companies/organisations;

  • how the academic community can help students develop these understandings and skills;
  • How the importance of such understandings and skills can be conveyed to students;
  • how the importance of such understandings and skills can be conveyed by students to staff
