READERS’ GUIDE This guide consists of nine chapters that address key areas for sustainability at universities – these range from laboratory design to managerial and organisational aspects. Each chapter consists of five elements: 1

Introduction, outlining why the theme is important.

2

Challenges and opportunities, presenting some of the key factors to address and giving suggestions for important approaches and tools.

3

Hurdles and solutions, outlining suggestions and providing inspiration for key questions about the area.

4

Cases, showcasing actual examples from IARU universities, and rated in difficulty from 1 (very easy) to 5 (very difficult).

5

Quick tips, further reading, and links for where to find more information.

The guide can either be read comprehensively from beginning to end – which will give the reader an integrated picture of how to work with sustainability at universities – or the reader can choose to focus on specific areas and individual chapters.
