Research output: Chapter in BookChapterDissemination


The ethical duty of the university requires adopting a sustainability model that has repercussions in all its areas of action and influence: spatial planning, mobility, waste management, management and optimization of resources,
knowledge transfer, information and awareness, research, curricular greening. It is found thatmost universities committed to sustainability processes have implemented strategic plans that contemplate, above all, objectives and actions in relation to sustainable management (energy, water, mobility, ...) but more difficult is the incorporation of curricular greening processes. This article proposes to guide the processes of curricular greening from a competence approach to respond more effectively to current demands and challenges and in order to advance in the construction of a more just, equitable and sustainable development, attending to the training of university students, future professionals and agents of change. It also briefly shows, as an example, the CSCT (Curriculum Sustainability Competence Teacher) that proposes a curricular framework in competencies for education for sustainability in the training of the
teaching staff, which can be transferable and adaptable to other university studies.
