LPPThe Leading Practice Publication (LPP) is the result of nearly two years of work on the UE4SD project building on the knowledge and experience of 53 partners from 33 countries active in the area of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) at European higher education institutions (HEIs). In these two years (2013-2015), a wealth of information has been gathered and we are pleased to share with you some of the key findings and experiences gained during the project in this publication.

The LPP presents 13 best practice examples on professional development of university educators in the area of ESD from 10 European countries.
The aim of the LPP is to:
1) provide an overview of the best practice examples of professional development opportunities for European university educators in the area of ESD; and to
2) inspire the reader to engage in supporting further developments in this field.
We believe that the LPP can serve as a reference point for current best practice in this important field of European higher education (HE), helping to pave the way towards a future in which all university educators have the opportunity to acquire relevant professional development in ESD.
