UNEP Guidelines on Education Policy for Sustainable Built Environments

Intent: Presents examples of
international best practice in
implementing curriculum and education
policy for eco-settlement and
sustainable building.





In Part 3, opportunities for interdisciplinary and multi-
stakeholder sustainability education for eco-
settlements and sustainable buildings are identified
in the context of common needs, actions and
challenges for sustainability education. Best
practices and regional exemplars of innovative
programs and projects in universities are presented,
with a case study of an approach to greening
campuses and schools known as learnscaping. An
exemplar of a faculty’s community engagement
program is also presented.

Regional exemplars of innovative programs and
projects in schools are also presented, with a case
study of a new professional development model for
teachers developed in a special project at the Faculty
of Built Environment at University of New South Wales
called “Knowledge Networks”.

A case study of urban transformation in Curitiba,
Brazil provides an exemplar of innovative
community awareness and capacity building
