This Erasmus+ project blends research and practice and represents an exciting opportunity to collaborate with leading Business Schools and non-government agencies in seven European countries.  The aim of the project is to promote the development of interventions in higher education institutions that equip staff and students with the knowledge and skills to be able to meet the wicked challenges that sustainability brings.  Researchers at Leeds Beckett are leading the development of resources to support the piloting of Integrated Reporting in the Higher Education Institutions participating in the project.  The project also affords opportunities to collaborate with partners on the development of a variety of innovative methods, tools and techniques to embed the principles and practice of sustainability amongst academics, administrative staff and students.   More information is available here

She passionately believes that the focus of corporate leaders should be in the best interests of the long-term health of an organisation, which requires the recognition that the three dimensions of sustainable development, the economy, society, and the environment, are indivisible and integrated.
