Description The first decade of the twenty-first century is rich in the production of guidance documents, in particular emanating from the United Nations, for a more responsible education attuned to the challenges of the new millennium. Beyond these documents, we highlight two central ideas: a clear reinforcement and commitment with the obligation to think about new models of action that guarantee a Sustainable Development and the awareness that Higher Education is a privileged space for an action that promotes the awareness of the new priorities, to be assumed by the future leaders to guarantee this same Development. From the reflection presented at "Challenges and Opportunities for the communication of the organizations in the Sustainable Development Goals" (Fernandes, 2018), this article is now analyzing the specific implications that these documents can have at the level of Higher Education. At the same time, the basis of a pilot study to be implemented at the School of Education of the Coimbra Polytechnic Institute (2018/19) is set out to apply new learning strategies for Sustainable Development, starting from of a reflection on the Sustainable Development Goals (of the UN and to be fulfilled between 2016/30). The methodology used for the preparation of the pilot study, presented here, is the content analysis of the descriptive of the professional profile of the alumni of the ESEC / IPC degrees, available on the ESEC website, seeking to translate it in terms of leadership exercised by these same professionals. For the construction of the pilot study, the methodology of the online questionnaire was also used to determine which Sustainable Development Goals are most addressed to each degree, thus outlining a specific Agenda for priority areas of intervention.
A primeira década do século XXI é relevante por diferentes motivos, dos quais destacamos dois: um claro reforço e comprometimento com a obrigatoriedade de se pensarem novos modelos de atuação que garantam um Desenvolvimento Sustentável e a tomada de consciência que o Ensino Superior é um espaço privilegiado para uma atuação que promova a tomada de consciência das novas prioridades que os futuros líderes devem assumir para garantir esse mesmo Desenvolvimento. A partir da reflexão “Desafios e Oportunidades para a comunicação das organizações nos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável” (Fernandes, 2018), pretende-se aprofundar as implicações específicas ao nível do Ensino Superior e lançar as bases de um projeto-piloto a implementar na Escola Superior de Educação do Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra (ano letivo de 2018/19). A metodologia utilizada, através da análise de conteúdo, partiu do descritivo do perfil de saída dos alunos dos cursos da ESEC/IPC disponível no site da ESEC, procurando traduzi-lo em termos de liderança exercida por esses mesmos profissionais. O estudo-piloto utilizou a metodologia do questionário online para apuramento de quais os Objetivos mais abordados nos cursos do mesmo estabelecimento.Será ainda a oportunidade para avaliar as implicações ao nível da comunicação desenvolvida nas e pelas Instituições de Ensino Superior suscitadas pelos Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável.
