On the Meaning of Sustainable Development : Humanity and Culture in the Age of Gaia and the Singularity

Brad Tabas
This text, a contribution to the philosophy of education, examines the meaning of the term sustainable development from the point of view of ordinary language philosophy.

Insights into the integration of the SDGs in engineering program curricula as seen through the prism of the perceptions of engineering students and educators

In this paper, we offer insight into how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are being integrated into engineering programs. We investigate the question : “what opportunities and barriers should we take into consideration in order to better integrate the SDGs into engineering programs ?” We undertook two exploratory focus group studies with engineering students and academic participants that explored their perception of SDGs’ integration into their programs. Our results show significant differences between the...
