The UNESCO Chair on Education for Sustainable Lifestyles was awarded to Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences in 2015 and renewed in 2019.
The UNESCO Chair on Education for Sustainable Lifestyles aims to promote an integrated system of research, training, information and documentation on education for sustainable lifestyles. It facilitates collaboration between high-level, internationally-recognized researchers and teaching staff of the University and other institutions in Norway, in Europe and North America, in Africa and in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as in other regions of the world.
The UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programme, which involves over 700 institutions in 116 countries, promotes international inter-university cooperation and networking to enhance institutional capacities through knowledge sharing and collaborative work. The programme supports the establishment of UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN Networks in key priority areas related to UNESCO’s fields of competence – i.e. in education, the natural and social sciences, culture and communication.
