MARCH 2023

I know the trend at this time of year is to look back and share ‘highlights’, however for Petrus it has been such a dynamic year full of momentum that I am firmly looking forward, and want to share what’s coming with you. Our fantastic network is behind the success of our projects and 2023 is packed with opportunities to get involved, from learning & sharing on embedding sustainability in the classroom, to new sustainability micro-credentials and a host of experiential online programmes for your students. With that in mind, please stay in touch.

What information sources are most used and trusted?

We are conducting research to better understand which sources of information in today’s diverse digital media landscape are most used and most trusted by different peer groups within the global education ecosystem.

We’d particularly like to hear from university representatives in leadership roles in teaching, research or library services. A summary of the results will be available for all participants, and all responses will be useful. The survey contains 5 short sections and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Please respond by Monday 13th March 2023.

Student perspectives on sustainability skills & education

In the report you will find student perspectives on sustainability-related topics covered in education globally; Skills and activities considered to be most important for addressing sustainability challenges and how education and industry leaders can further support students today.
