Sustainability in the formal and informal curriculum

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is about ensuring that our graduates, regardless of their field of study, are equipped with the necessary skills and attributes to face global challenges

The University and Kent Students’ Union, in partnership, are working together to facilitate institution change in embedding sustainability throughout all parts of the student learning experience. 

We are working to ensure that every student – from architecture to business, and chemistry to digital arts – is prepared with the knowledge and understanding of sustainability, and possess the sustainability skills and attributes, and the desire and willingness to deal with these issues.  


"Education for Sustainable Development allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.
