Research output: Contributions to collected editions/worksChapterpeer-review


Higher education has a unique opportunity to provide learning for the future and help the world address the rapidly unfolding social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability challenges of the 21st century. However, to fulfil this role at the regional, national and international levels, higher education institutions themselves have to undergo critical transformation towards sustainable development in their philosophy and practices and put in place the quality assurance systems to ensure that this transformation is consistently implemented and effective.
