The last slots are available for presentations at the “Symposium on Sustainable Development Research at Universities in the United Kingdom” , organised by Manchester Metropolitan University, in cooperation with a number of institutions of higher education active in this field, from across the country. It will be held on 5-6 April 2016 and will involve researchers in the field of sustainable development in the widest sense, from business and economics, to arts and fashion, administration, environment, languages and media studies.
The aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences on sustainable development
research in the UK today. To this purpose, a peer-reviewed book titled “Sustainable Development Research at Universities in the United Kingdom” will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be part of the award-winning “World Sustainability Series”, published by Springer, one of the world´s top five scientific publishers.
