DMU’s Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Forum are hosting two events on embedding sustainability into education.

DMU aims to embed the education for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across the curriculum, but many staff and students wonder how this can be done in practice. These two events provide tangible examples through keynote talks, case studies of practice at DMU and examples of activities, assessment and student work.
