Integrating Sustainability into Adult Education Studies

Language: EN

Posted by Violeta Orlovic...

Global orientation towards implementing sustainability in education programmes and processes at all the levels is being reflected in the most relevant documents in the field of adult education. While there is awareness of that need in declarations and documents at the national level, in the context of an early stage of implementation of sustainable principles, there is yet a lot to be done to incorporate those principles at the higher education level in Serbia. The
paper presents some steps taken towards the integration of sustainability into the curriculum of adult education studies at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade. Approaching sustainability from a lifelong learning perspective, it
describes the context and goals of developing syllabus for the subjects of Environmental Adult Education and Ecological Andragogy for undergraduate and Ph.D. students at the Department for Andragogy of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade. The aim of this contribution is to inspire
discussion on needs and opportunities for increasing awareness and understanding sustainability in future adult educators in the course of higher education, for
the sake of strengthening capacities for sustainable development across the borders of countries, sectors and disciplines.
