Higher Education Institutions in a Global Warming World aims to contribute to the global debate on sustainability in higher education, and in particular to the transition of higher education institutions to a low carbon economy.

The transition of higher education institutions towards a low carbon economy is aligned with the Paris Agreement and with Sustainable Development Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. It is also consistent with the European Commission's climate strategies and targets and with the aims of the European Climate Change Program.

Transitioning to a low carbon economy represents one of the most significant and urgent challenges we are facing, and universities have a critical role to play in fostering a low carbon future, especially by developing innovative solutions. This book intends to be a contribution to this discussion about sustainability in higher education.
