Abstract

Developing countries have been facing more challenges to sustainability than the developed countries. This book chapter evaluates the current sustainable education practices among the universities in Bangladesh and proposes a revised multi-level framework in order to enhance sustainability education practices among the universities in Bangladesh. Based on the opinion of the staff and students of top 10 public and private universities (according to the University Grant Commission report 2018) in Bangladesh, the study found that there is some evidence of the inclusion of sustainability issues onto the faculty's mission and vision statements, but very few are incorporated into the program curricula. Besides, lacking sustainability training to the teachers provokes their failure of providing education for sustainable development. Finally, considering the findings, this chapter proposes the importance and role of regulatory authorities, teachers, students, professionals, and corporate people enhancing sustainable education practices at the university level.
