Sustainability and Peace in Costa Rica: The Case of University of Costa Rica
Segreda, Alejandrina Mata
Higher Education Policy, v15 n2 p169-176 Jun 2002
This article describes initiatives at the University of Costa Rica, which, in combination with national programs, have strengthened the country's commitment to sustainable development over the past 15 years. It discusses the University's role in defining a national perspective on sustainability starting in 1987, as well as the evolution of the University's Programa Institucional de Sostenibilidad y Paz (PRINSOPAZ) from being University focused to joining with the Earth Council to promote the Earth Charter both nationally and internationally.
