ANNOUNCEMENT FROM: ECOCAMPUS MANAGEMENT CENTRE
SUBJECT: CALL FOR AUTHORS: "ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS: TRANSFORMING THE WORLD WE WANT"
As you are probably aware, in September 2015 the UN General Assembly approved the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. On 1st January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development officially came into force. The goals cover the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection.
The 17 SDGs are:
There are to date no comprehensive publications addressing the SDGs in an integrated way. Therefore, the "Encyclopedia of the Sustainable Development Goals: Transforming the World We Want" is being produced by the World Sustainable Development Research and Transfer Centre and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme, being published by Springer, as part of the award-winning "World Sustainability Series":
The Encyclopedia encompasses 17 volumes, each one devoted to one of the 17 SDGs.
Prof. Walter Leal (HAW Hamburg, Germany and Manchester Metropolitan University, UK) as the editor-in-chief is calling for expressions of interest from colleagues who may wish to support this project and may be interested to act as authors, writing chapters for the following volumes:
SDG1- No Poverty
SDG4- Quality Education
SDG 5- Gender Equality
SDG 8- Decent Work and Economic Growth
SDG 7- Affordable and Clean Energy
SDG 9- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
SDG 10- Reduced Inequalities
SDG 16- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
SDG 17- Partnerships for the Goals
This is an honorary, i.e. non-paid position, but entails a wide visibility since the names and affiliation of the authors will appear on the publication both in print, as well as on the on-line version, which they will be able to access free of any charges. Contributions to the Encyclopedia are peer-reviewed and hence officially count for promotion and tenure purposes.
If you think you can accept the invitation to act as authors for the above chapters, please let the following professors know:
They will then send you more details. You are welcome to take part on the world´s largest editorial project on sustainability ever undertaken. Many thanks.
