Sustainable development goals as a perspective for higher education institutions
Languages of publication
Universities are now faced with a huge challenge. They need to see the change in society and due to this, they must change themselves. United Nations Environment Programme might be helpful in this process. The implementation process is difficult as many people are involved. The understanding of the process and of its necessity must be shared by every member of a particular institution. The term ‘sustainable development’, even if used so commonly, may be understood differently, so further research is suggested on clarifying the term. Due to its popularity, many universities are now involved in many activities like signing a declaration of sustainable development or other initiatives. For some of those institutions, it is an apparent action that is not followed by any action later. The goals itself are very useful for higher education institutions as they play a role of a road map on the way to establishing strong and living links with the society as such, represented by stakeholders.
