Dr. Claudia Ortiz Chao (National Autonomous University of Mexico) discusses with Sabina Cioboata (University of Westminster, UK) on how universities in general, and urban programmes in particular, can become leaders for change and innovation in dealing with sustainability issues in an integrated, context-sensitive manner. Dr. Ortiz Chao draws from UNAM’s experience in setting up cutting-edge programmes which treat issues such as climate change inter-disciplinarily, and outlines the university’s own efforts to become more environmentally sustainable. Throughout this exploration, she reflects on challenges and opportunities in reviewing curricula, integrating climate knowledge within urban programmes, and working across sectors in Mexico.
