Dear Colleagues, Reference: Invitation to contribute to a study on networking for the implementation of the SDGS The European School of Sustainability Science and Research (ESSSR) https://esssr.eu/ and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) https://www.haw-hamburg.de/ftz-nk/programme/iusdrp.html are undertaking a study to assess the perceptions about the contributions being provided by various networks, towards the implementation of the SDGs. There are many networks on matters related to sustainable development, but it is unclear how many are actively engaging in the delivery of the SDGs. The instrument for data collection can be seen at: https://forms.gle/6wvfyzWQV2WqKvdDA. Responding to it will only take a minute, so please feel free to take part. Colleagues interested to receive a copy of the paper where the results appear should send a note to: FTZ-NKProjects <FTZ-NKProjects@haw-hamburg.de>. IJSHE is making available some recent papers showcasing examples of scholarly research on sustainability in a higher education context. The papers can be downloaded for a period of 4 weeks, free of charges at: https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijshe/key-ijshe-articles-free-access-one-month?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=ace_GLO-ACE-USE-EJ-IJSHE-key-article-promo-20210506_20210506_free The IUSDRP latest papers can be downloaded at no costs at IUSDRP´s web site (please scroll down to "sharing"): https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/programmes/iusdrp/ If you wish to join IUSDRP's mailing list, please click here: https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=IUSDRP.
