Education Towards a Responsible Society: An Ecosystemic Approach for Advocacy, Public Policies, Research and Teaching Programmes
An in-depth ecosystemic, well-structured critical entry experiences develop the potentiality of the socio-cultural learning niches as agents of change, encompassing four dimensions of being in the world (intimate, interactive, social and biophysical), as they combine, as donors and recipients, to induce the events (deficits/assets), cope with consequences (desired/undesired) and contribute for change (potential outputs), towards environmental problems, quality of life and the state of the world.
Das Toolkit wurde im Rahmen des Forschungsprojektes BiNKA (www.achtsamkeit-und-konsum.de) entwickelt, das untersuchte, inwiefern Praktiken und Philosophie der Achtsamkeit zur Bildung für einen nachhaltigen Konsum beitragen können. Das Toolkit bietet eine Vielzahl von Ideen und Anregungen für Lehrkräfte, Ausbildende und andere pädagogisch Tätige, die gemeinsam mit denjenigen, die sie unterrichten oder ausbilden, Achtsamkeitsübungen mit Bezügen zum nachhaltigen Konsum ausprobieren wollen.
This toolkit derives from the three-year research project BiNKA (www.mindfulness-and-consumption.de) that investigated to what extent practices and philosophy of mindfulness may contribute to education for sustainable consumption. The toolkit offers a variety of ideas and suggestions for teachers, trainers and other pedagogical professionals who, together with those they teach or train, want to experience and try out mindfulness exercises related to sustainable consumption.

A Holistic View for Integrating Sustainability Education for the Built Environment Professions in Indonesia
Emerging economies in Asia and Latin America face rapid urbanization and city building in the next few decades. The existing work force and the next generation of built environment graduates play a significant role in lowering carbon emissions as a result of rapid building and infrastructure now and in the future. A range of disciplines comprises the built environment professions, and these disciplines need to work collaboratively to optimize design, construction and operational impacts.
The webinar “Sustainable Business Models on Circularity in the Built Environment” was the result of collaboration between two programmes of the One Planet network: Sustainable Building & Construction and Sustainable Tourism. This collaboration pools knowledge of sustainability experts to further reflection on application of circular economy principles on the ground.
The United Nations entities supporting the operationalisation and implementation of the One Planet partnership propose a way forward in addressing the gaps identified on Goal 12 and applying the recommendations made by the United Nations Secretary General, building on achievements and lessons learnt over the first five years of the One Planet multi-stakeholder partnership.
UN Environment: 10 years of action to accelerate the shift to Sustainable public procurement at national, regional and global levels
his case study summarizes 10 years of action of UN Environment in the field of Sustainable Procurement. From 2008 to 2017, UN Environment supported 18 countries on SPP implementation through the UN Environment SPP Approach. The organization took a leading role in the establishment and development of the One Planet (10YFP) SPP Programme, an international collaborative platform which develops solutions to improve the performance of SPP, monitor and supports implementation throughout the world.
This document outlines the 5-year strategy of the One Planet network over the period 2018-2022 to become a leading implementation mechanism for SDG 12, on sustainable consumption and production.
The One Planet network is a multistakeholder partnership which has formed to implement the committment of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production.

A Holistic View for Integrating 4 Sustainability Education for the Built Environment Professions in Indonesia
Emerging economies in Asia and Latin America face rapid urbanization and city building in the next few decades. The existing work force and the next generation of built environment graduates play a signiﬁcant role in lowering carbon emissions as a result of rapid building and infrastructure now and in the future.
The integration of sustainability and sustainable practices in the construction industry is ultimately benefiting the environment,society,and economics.Many green office buildings in Australia achieved Green Star ratings have claimed outstanding achievements such as energy efficiency,greenhouse gas reduction,healthy work environment,and productivity growth.
Integrating Interdisciplinary Thinking and Practice: A Case Study of a Victorian University in Australia
The value of interdisciplinary approaches to curriculum have been considered successful along multiple fronts; including reducing administrative burden from inter departmental collaboration, providing “intellectual” solutions to problems and breaking academic discipline boundaries.Criticism from industry often focuses on educators not preparing graduates for work in the real world.
Future-proofing buildings: optimising facility management in building design to achieve high performance for occupants
Buildings in general are large contributors of global greenhouse emissions and environmental deterioration. Climate adaptation of existing and new buildings is crucial in reducing their impact on climate change.In order to achieve this, efficient performance evaluation and operational management of buildings is required for future proofing buildings and other built environment assets.In particular, owner occupied buildings, including educational buildings offer unique opportunities.
This paper aims to evaluate how transformative learning is key to innovating sustainability education in the built environment in the region’s universities, in addition to reporting on the research project undertaken to integrate sustainability thinking and practice into engineering/built environment curricula in Asia-Pacific universities.
Challenges in aligning the architecture profession in Indonesia for climate change and sustainability
Increased energy use and attendant green house emissions are associated with increased urbanization.At the same time, climate change poses challenges for the built environment where there are tensions between rapid city building and low carbon growth.This paper develops and tests a method for the institutional development of built environment professions in emerging economies that are dealing with a range of issues, including rapid urbanization, and rapid building and construction.
