In preparing this Sustainable Societies in Africa: Modules on Education for Sustainable Development course, input was collected during four Mainstreaming Environment and Sustainability in Africa (MESA) University Partnership workshops. These workshops included professors, lecturers, and managers from over sixty universities in Africa as well as representatives from the African Association of Universities (AAU), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations University (UNU) and the United Nations University/Global Virtual University (UNU/GVU). Additional workshops and meetings on Sustainable Societies in Africa: Modules on Education for Sustainable Development were held at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana and the National Universities Commission in Abuja, Nigeria.
