Capacity Building and Best Practice

The Capacity Building and Best Practices technical Working Table continues the work that was started in the previous three-year period by the Commission of the same name, aimed at encouraging an analytical and operational exchange among the members of the various RUS working groups on the subject of capacity building and capacity to intervene in sustainable development at Italian universities.

Main goals of the WT:

  1. To define shared criteria and methods for the selection of academic best practices on sustainable development for the purpose of their dissemination and communication;
  2. to create a context in which to promote exchange among the members of the WGs with a focus on knowledge and enhancement of academic best practices on sustainable development;
  3. share knowledge and operational guidance on good practices in structuring and organizing University Sustainable Development Offices/Sectors/Areas.

The Working Table commits to the preparation at the end of each of the three years of its term of office of a white paper on the activities carried out by the three sub-working groups (presented at a national conference and published on the RUS page).
