How this will be achieved

The Education for sustainable development has a long tradition at the University of Education Schwäbisch Gmünd. Already in the nineties oft the last century, some colleagues have developed theoretical concepts for environmental education and tested practically at the university.

Since 2000 the education for sustainable development is a central issue in many departments. In particular, the department of biology develops and evaluates pedagogical approaches for this purpose. An example is the project ?Worldrangers? by Professor Dr. Hans-Martin Haase.

In 2011, the senate of the university founded a committee. This group is supposed to intensify and strengthen the profile of sustainability, which is laid down in the actual programme of the university.
