The project will be co-led by a steering group composed by the University of Gloucestershire (lead organisation, UK), Charles University (Czech Republic), Leuphana University (Germany) and the University Autónoma of Madrid (Spain).

The project involves the creation of a thematic academic network with a minimum of 25 EU member states. The Network will work in partnership to map opportunities for university-educators to develop Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) competences through professional development. It will (i) identify and capture leading practice in the areas of ESD competences and professional development in universities, (ii) edit a publication highlighting innovative case studies, (iii) produce an online database of resources, and (iv) frame and trial a sustain­ability in higher education professional development and networking platform.
