The Universiti Sains Malaysia and the Leuphana University of Lüneburg cordially invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education, which will take place in Penang, Malaysia on 20 – 22 November 2009.

After five years of the UN Decade ‚Education for Sustainable Development’ this conference provides the opportunity to critically reflect on what has been achieved so far and which tasks and challenges remain to be addressed. The 3rd international conference - hosted by the UNESCO Chair‚ Higher Education for Sustainable Development’ in cooperation with the Universiti Sains Malaysia - is asking for the specific implications for higher education, focusing on higher education practice, research and teaching/learning. Locating the regional focus of this year’s conference on the Asia-Pacific region will continue the international dimension of the conference and will highlight the intent of cross-cultural dialogue.

In a 3-day program with lectures, workshops, poster presentations and round tables we will discuss the topic and present state of the art research. We therefore invite all researchers and higher education institutions committed to integrating sustainability into their curricula to contribute to the conference by sharing their experiences and presenting research activities for Sustainable Development in Higher Education.
