Mapping and review of the state of the art of institutional sustainability self-assessment models and tools and integration of systems thinking and modelling

Sust-HEIn project aims to elevate the transition of HEIs in Greece, Cyprus, Italy and Spain to green, sustainable institutions, by fostering the whole-institution approach to sustainability through systems thinking. It aims to promote an institutional model to support HEIs’ strategic planning to effectively respond to evolving needs and conditions to deliver systemic, institution-wide integration of sustainability, using systems thinking to analyze external and internal factors and their influence as well as where internal shifts are needed to respond to these factors.

The project, through transnational cooperation and mutual learning, will identify, develop, test and assess the whole institution approach to sustainability through systems thinking in the HE sector, which responds to the key European priorities of the European Green Deal (and education and training systems and institutions becoming catalysts for achieving the transition to a greener and more sustainable Europe), and of the European Education Area and sixth flagship action of the European Skills Agenda (on supporting the green transition); and it has the potential of becoming mainstreamed, thus improving the education systems, and the effectiveness of policies and practices in the field of education.
