This book examines the question what a sustainable society implies and how the higher education system could foster its development. In the book, sustainability is perceived as a holistic concept which is reaching into a variety of disciplines and could affect the social thinking in societies, especially in the areas of ethics, knowledge development, and democracy. Furthermore, the role of higher education in the promotion of a sustainable society based on the pillars of freedom, democracy, liberty, and science are discussed and, in this respect, the concept of Mutual Competence Building in higher education is introduced as a key contributor to a sustainable society.
