Commitment to ESD in learning, teaching & research
Bangor University is committed to becoming ‘the Sustainable University’ through the University’s Strategic Plan and sustainability policy. By emphasising sustainability, aiming for an international and ‘best in class’ reputation for its commitment to sustainable development, and by setting short and long term targets to integrate all aspects of sustainability into daily operations, it is contributing not only to its own sustainability but also to that of the region and the world in the context of its rich, natural environment and in terms of social cohesion, financial stability, and resource efficiency.
What this means for students is that the University provides excellent education and student experiences, and ensures that the development of the curriculum reflects this commitment to sustainable development and global citizenship. This approach also enhances teaching and research success by aiming to foster a culture that values and promotes sustainability alongside business and enterprise activities.
ESD support & training for staff
Bangor’s staff development team and the trades unions work with the sustainability@Bangor team to offer informal and structured support and training to help all staff integrate ESD into the curriculum and their work as part of Bangor’s ongoing commitment to its staff’s Continuing Professional Development programme to ensure continual improvement of its learning, teaching, research and other activities. This support and training includes discussions about ESD, opportunities to explore and develop collaborations, and support to develop ESD teaching, learning, research and work resources.
Get in touch with the sustainability@Bangor team to find out what’s on offer.
