Abstract

The article presents the concept of sustainability in the interdisciplinary (economic, social, ecological and institutional) context by adapting sustainability principles in the education system and presenting some evidence from Lithuanian universities from the survey, conducted in 2007-2008. The students and university lecturers of four Lithuanian universities (Vilnius University, Kaunas University of Technology, Šiauliai University and Klaipėda University) were surveyed in order to define the impact of sustainability paradigm and principles as imbedded in the daily life of a university, study curriculum and university governance.
