This event is part of the Education for a Sustainable and Resilient Future project, which is supported by the Connect4Innovation: UK-Turkey Higher Education Institutional Partnerships Fund from the British Council’s Going Global Partnerships Programme. 

This project is carried out in collaboration with TED University, Turkey and the Sustainable and Resilient Futures (SRF) Network at Oxford Brookes University (OBU). It is designed to transform higher education curricula across different disciplines according to the principles of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
This event coincides with TEDU staff visit to OBU. It brings together OBU staff ranging from senior management to module (course) leaders who will share their strategic ambitions and practical experience of adopting the principles of ESD with the audience.
