Recognition of the interconnectedness of buildings, people, and community is essential for the creation of a sustainable built environment. A number of factors have led to a focus on sustainable design and construction within the built environment. These include a greater awareness of and sensitivity towards the world’s limited natural resources (reducing environmental impacts), as well as a growing demand for healthier, more energy-efficient, and more environmentally responsible homes, schools, hospitals, work places, and leisure facilities (providing physiologically and psychologically healthier indoor environments). In this special edition of Sustainability on ‘Built Environment Education’, we invite submissions from those working with the next generation of building professionals to share their experiences of embedding sustainability principles and education for sustainable decision-making in Built Environment Education programmes. Papers that explore approaches to teaching the interrelationship of the designed and constructed environment with human behaviour, human health and welfare, and environmental responsibilities are particularly welcomed.
