Welcome to The Sustainable University (SU) One-stop Shop, which promotes Sustainability in Higher Education (SHE) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) worldwide.


5 January 2011

This open access online resource was launched in January 2011 as a single website.

Today, this One-stop Shop comprises seven satellite websites (News and Information, Research, Good Practice, Quotes, Blog, Diary and Micro-blog) positioned around a central platform (this website). It has entirely been developed using free web resources (free website builders and social networking).

Considering a Sustainable University as composed of three elements, namely campus, knowledge and community, this resource has adopted an innovative integrated approach comprising education, communication, research, networking and motivation.

This One-stop Shop has achieved recognition at global, national and local levels (please see box on the right).

Currently, I seek sustainability-related opportunities (full or part-time) in Higher Education/ Education, Business, Media or Charity sector. Please feel free to contact me on

Sharing for a Sustainable World #SSW is the social updates scheme of The Sustainable University One-stop Shop.

Daily, #SSW shares eight types of updates related to sustainability in higher education (SHE) and education for sustainable development (ESD).

This scheme strives to facilitate SHE/ESD networking worldwide and has achieved some progress. For example, see below the tweet by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) based in the US:
