Call for Papers, “World Symposium on Climate Literacy”,  Manchester, UK, 9th-11th September 2024– Deadline for Abstracts: 30th April

Climate change literacy is crucial as it may empower individuals and communities with the knowledge to understand the impacts of climate change, the underlying science, and the strategies needed for mitigation and adaptation. By being informed, people can make more environmentally responsible decisions, advocate for sustainable policies, and adapt to changes that are already occurring. Climate literacy also involves understanding the evidence for climate change, recognising its influence on environmental and human systems, and being able to participate in community-based efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to its impacts. As climate change affects all sectors of society, literacy is necessary for everyone, from policymakers and scientists to students and the general public, ensuring a well-informed community ready to tackle these challenges effectively.

There is a perceived need for events which may cater for in-depth discussions about how the cause of climate literacy may be fostered.  It is against this background that the  “World Symposium on Climate Literacy” is being organised. The Symposium aims to provide a platform for researchers, practitioners  and educators engaged with climate literacy to exchange their knowledge and perspectives.

The Symposium also aims to offer a valuable platform to enable climate literacy providers and users from the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Middle East regions to depeen their knowledge on the topic and enhance networks. The theme of the Symposium, “Combining the Theory and Practice of Climate Change Literacy” reflects the intention to offer participants an opportunity to present what they are  doing,  both in research and reflections on climate literacy principles, and their implementation in practice.

As an output and long-term documentation of the event, selected papers will be published in the book  “Combining the Theory and Practice of Climate Change Literacy”, which will follow on the success of the 3-volumes “Handbook of Climate Change Communication”
with over 200 authors, and the 6- volumes “Handbook of Climate Change Management” one of the world´s largest non-publicly editorial projects on climate change produced to date, to which over 500 authors have contributed. The book will be  produced as part of the Climate Change Management Series, published by Springer Nature, which is fully indexed. All papers are peer-reviewed. Publications in the book series have been officially counting for promotion and tenure purposes over the years.

Interested participants should prepare an abstract of 200 to 300 words, along with the authors’ names and full contact details, summarising their planned inputs. Abstracts should be sent to the coordinating team of the “World Symposium on Climate Literacy”  by filling in the on-line form.

The deadline for submissions of abstracts is 30th April 2024. Full papers are due by 30th September 2024. The details will be discussed with the selected authors. It is also possible to attend the event and make a presentation, without producing a paper.

International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education

The International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education (IF 4.120) is the world´s only journal which focuses on aspects of sustainable development at universities. Since its creation in the year 2000, the journal has been playing a key role in documenting the evolution of sustainability processes in higher education, being now central to the academic debate on matters related to sustainability at universities.A special issue on “Assessing the incorporation of UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in Learning and Teaching Policies of Higher Education Institutions”, is currently accepting abstract and full paper.There is a growing focus on the need to ensure that students and graduates are informed about or have an overall awareness about the UN SDGs. One of the structured approaches to ensure this may happen, is to systematically embed the UN SDGs within an institution’s learning and teaching policy. This Special Issue therefore aims report on approaches, methods, tools and processes to incorporate the UN SDGs in higher education institutions. It also explores if there may be differences about the incorporation of the UN SDGs at HEIs in different countries and in different specialist subjects.Link to submit full paper:

O aumento dos custos de energia e a atual preocupação com as questões de sustentabilidade impactam diretamente na competitividade e sobrevivência das organizações, promovendo a busca pela melhoria contínua nos processos produtivos industriais. O presente estudo, ao identificar a ausência na literatura de modelos baseados em Value Stream Mapping e integrados com tecnologias da Indústria 4.0 que promovam melhores práticas de eficiência energética em processos industriais, propõe um novo modelo de Lean Management denominado Real-time Energy Flow Mapping. Este modelo inovador, capacita um sistema de gestão visual, digital e sustentável de todo comportamento energético em máquinas e equipamentos utilizando métricas e regras totalmente parametrizáveis. Além disso, estimular os stakeholders com a capacidade de prever e monitorar os custos de energia, bem como identificar possíveis problemas devido a mudanças no comportamento do consumo de energia nas máquinas, ajudando assim os gestores a tomar decisões de forma mais rápida e dinâmica. Como resultado, a pesquisa bibliográfica revelou 17 modelos baseados em Mapeamento do Fluxo de Valor com foco em eficiência energética, juntamente com 31 métricas agrupadas em processos energéticos, ambientais e produtivos. Após discussões pelos Focus Groups, 16 métricas resultantes foram submetidas a painel de especialistas, no qual as menos relevantes foram descartadas e as 13 mais relevantes classificadas usando Fuzzy Delphi. Uma análise para verificar as inter-relações entre as métricas é realizada utilizando o Fuzzy DEMATEL, sendo por fim aplicada no modelo proposto. Foi realizado um estudo de caso do modelo, submetendo-o operacionalmente ao LabFaber 4.0, validando empiricamente o estudo. O Mapa de Fluxo de Energia em Tempo Real preenche a lacuna na literatura sobre modelos de Mapeamento do Fluxo de Valor para melhorar a eficiência energética, monitorando o consumo de energia por meio do mapeamento dinâmico do fluxo de energia dos processos produtivos, identificando a área com maior potencial de economia de energia por meio de mudanças no comportamento operacional que reduzem o consumo geral de energia e os impactos ambientais.
