The second GreenMetric Ranking of World Universities was announced by Universitas Indonesia. its objective was allowing 'universities in both the developed and developing world to compare their efforts towards campus sustainability and environment friendly university management'. A number of insights into the issue of green jobs and green skills emerged in particular during the PASCAL Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) in the city of Melbourne. Enhancing community awareness about green issues through public education for the greening of values, expectations and behaviour is a dimension of lifelong learning and active citizenship. Offering core university teaching and learning that addresses sustainability issues is evident within many PURE regions. Orr was one of the first to argue that for the challenges of sustainable development to be addressed ecological literacy must be embedded across the curriculum and into all university operations.
