The Partnership for Education and Research about Responsible Living
PERL is a partnership of educators and researchers from over 140 institutions in more than 50 countries–working to empower citizens to live responsible and sustainable lifestyles.
PERL is working with a number of organisations and through a number of processes. A range of organisations also fund and support PERL–just look at the logos (and click on them)!
70 PERL partners from Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa consulted, laughed, danced and worked together to further develop education and research about responsible living. With the presence of Irish Minister of State for Training and Skills Cairan Cannon T.D. and Guus Geisen the meeting was both inspirational and constructive.
A new international project will soon begin, addressing the question of “how a common understanding in higher education of responsible consumption is developed and Nordic collaboration strengthened?”
Read more about the relevant issues that were focused on at the PERL collective working meeting in Marseille in March 2013. David Selby of Sustainability Frontiers provided valuable insights to the meeting.
This project has been carried out with the support of the European Community in the framework of the Erasmus Programme. The content of this project does not necessarily reflect the position of the European Community, nor does it involve any responsibility on the part of the European Community.
