Education for Sustainability
Edited by Luis Felipe Nascimento
Published March and April of 2016
Education for Sustainability (EfS), a topic frequently discussed in Management Meetings and debates on education for management, suggests a need to change the educational paradigm. Studies are being carried out to identify the level of knowledge among students and teachers of management courses, the gaps in the curricula, and the need of organizations for managers capable of making them more sustainable and competitive. The papers in this Special Issue analyze EfS in educational institutions and business organizations around the world.
