Abstract

This chapter explores the opportunities and challenges of humanising higher education through sustainable development education and climate action. Using the framework of head, hand, heart (Devis-Rozental 2018) the premise of ‘Play with Purpose’ and the metaphor of the ‘Tree of Life’ (Sinha 2018), the chapter creates positive landscapes for change, bringing together contemporary theory and practice that provides guidance and inspiration for practitioners and academics working in this area, to be part of the community of practice of educators and professionals supporting, inspiring and challenging our future leaders and colleagues. We need to transform our HE system, and link it to positive change to protect our planet from further harm, in so doing give ourselves the best chance of a fulfilled and beautiful life.
