Sustainability engineering education
Peter Glavič, 2006, original scientific article

Abstract: University sustainability education programmes in several European countries and the US have been compared to find common characteristics of the curricula in environmental science and engineering programmes. In particular, chemical engineering and applied chemistry departments have been focused here. Small, innovative European countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland) have been in fore front. In bigger countries (France, Great Britain, Spain, and the US) programmes from some of the top 100 universities in Europe and the Americas have been considered, three from each country and seven from the US. The frequency of the courses in various groups and typical course titles are shown within each group. Evolution from pollution prevention courses to sustainability subjects is observed. The most employed textbooks are also provided.

The sustainable university as a system: The case of the University of Maribor
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper deals with the university as an institution that responds to global problems, using creative, real-world problem solving, based on "learningby doing". Sustainability-oriented problem solving at the university require new approaches, based on interconnection and collaboration within a system (university) and with other systems (municipality, enterprises). The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to explore management changes and curricula improvements, based on the principles of communitarianism and improved ways of communication within the university.

What are the key elements of a sustainable university?
Rebeka Kovačič Lukman, Peter Glavič, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: Nowadays, the principles of sustainable development are becoming increasingly important and universities are acting as agents in promoting these principles within society. In the future, universities will inevitably play crucial role in propagating these principles. This paper highlights important documents and discusses definitions of the term education for sustainable development. Elements, based on continuous feedback loop (Deming spiral) are discussed, in order to incorporate sustainability principles into university activities. The University of Maribor has been used as a case study to test the effectiveness of the proposed integration of sustainable development principles.
