Role of higher education in sustainable development in Indian perspectives

Ram Kishor Kumar
Higher Educational Institutions must play a role in identifying and addressing the issues that affect the well-being of nations and global society. Mobilisation for this purpose needs public awareness and involvement of private sector of the economy. Educational institutions, public and private both, will have to redefine their missions and goals, and establish the priorities as per the needs of the sustainable society. If the goals of Sustainable Development are to be realized, the attitudes of all the stakeholders of Higher Education in particular and of education at all the levels in general with regard to our current lifestyles and the impact they have on the environment will need to change. Seminars, conferences, workshops etc. are fine and important but it is vital that these must result into some concrete actions and deeds. Education is the fundamental pillar of human rights, democracy, peace and sustainable development. Development of sustainable individuals and thereafter sustainable communities should be one of the major goals of Higher Education system both nationally and globally.
