The paper reports progress on the launch of a project to empower a multidisciplinary faculty of students and teachers to implement practical actions towards improving environmental sustainability in their multiple contexts. The project focusses on drawing lessons FOR and WITH SMEs who have the ambition to achieve a zero or positive environmental impact as a by-product (or product) of their operations. The rationale for the project is that many efforts to pursue environmental sustainability are insufficient to address the true environmental challenges that face societies. The paper concludes by challenging educators to adopt Education for Sustainability enabling every graduate to think and act as a sustainable practitioner in their employment, their household, their communities, and their professional discipline.
