Implementation of Sustainability in Universities survey

On behalf of Dr. Rodrigo Lozano, AMIChemE, University of Leeds.

"I am contacting you from a research team at the University of Leeds.  We are currently working with partners from Belgium, Mexico, Slovenia, the UK, and the USA on a project looking at the implementation of Sustainable Development in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) worldwide. As part of this project we have developed an on-line survey, which we would like as many HEIs to complete.

We have identified your organisation as one that may be able to distribute a link to the questionnaire and encourage your members to complete the questionnaire.

Details of the questionnaire are available here:

It would be great if more than one person from your university can answer the survey."
