Proposal Statement and Input Process

Public Input Process on GCSE Proposal Statement


*NOTE: the public input process closed June, 2023. Please check our website in August 2023 for project updates and results of the public input process. 


Thank you for your interest in providing feedback on the Global Council for Science and the Environment’s Proposal Statement on Key Competencies in Sustainability. Participation in the public input process will entail the following steps:

  1. Review of the Proposal Statement document
  2. Completion of an online survey
  3. Optional participation in an interview

Your feedback will contribute to refining the Proposal Statement in order to affirm convergence around the shared reference framework on key competencies in sustainability and how it provides dynamic guidance for learning objectives for sustainability and sustainability-related programs in higher education. The input process is part of a research study, in which your participation is voluntary. Completing the online survey should take approximately 30-45 minutes. More information about the focus groups can be found at the end of the survey.

If you have any questions about the public input process or research study, please contact our team at Katja Brundiers at or Jordan King at
