The project started in 2009 with the mission of facilitating and encouraging institutions of higher education to engage in ESD, Education for Sustainable Development. The first goal is to provide a framework for sharing good practices and facilitating the dialogue and self-reflection, and to this end, the project has developed SUSTAIN, SUStianabiliy Tool for Academic INstitutions. After three pilot tests, the tool is now waiting to be released.
