Greening Universities in Australia: Progress and Possibilities
Noonan, Donna; Thomas, Ian
Australian Journal of Environmental Education, v20 n2 p67-79 2004
The greening of universities has been on the international agenda for at least a decade. While there has been considerable activity at some universities overseas, progress in Australian universities has been less easily identifiable. Also, the term "greening" has often been taken to apply to the operations of a university, whereas the universities' curricular should also be examined. After providing a background to the greening of curricula and operations, this article presents an overview of the current status of Australian universities. The relatively poor progress is discussed in the context of the issues associated with bringing about change in universities, and some proposals are made for facilitating change. (Contains 1 figure.)
