PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS
Delegates attending the Symposium will come from a cross-sectoral range of areas. These are:
i. research and teaching staff
ii. student groups;
iii. members of university administrations;
iv. project officers and consultants;
v. other people interested in the field.
It is believed that this wide range of participants will help to outline the need for integrated approaches towards sustainability and the arts, promote cross-sectorial collaboration and hence contribute towards advancing the cause of integrating sustainability and the arts in higher education even further.
STRUCTURE OF THE EVENT
The Symposium will be organized around two main strands:
Strand 1: the posters
Participating universities will be able to put-up displays describing their works, research and teaching projects, and to distribute the relevant information to the participants.
Strand 2: the presentations
A set of presentations will be organized, divided into sections. The programme will be structured when all abstracts have been submitted.
The events organized as part of the “Accelerating Sustainable Development Series” are high level events, which count on a strong participation of interested colleagues and vibrant discussions. Therefore, it is important to note that the submission of papers to the event and their subsequent consideration for the International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education are subject to the following condition: only papers from researchers who have registered, attended the event and presented and discussed their works will be considered for the special issue. Submissions which do not meet this criteria will not be considered.
The event will be held at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC.
The exact address is: 66 George Street, Charleston, SC, 29424.
