This paper highlights the contribution of the Sulitest (the Sustainability Literacy Test) to the global agenda of integrating sustainability into higher education. The Sustainability Literacy Test is an open online training and assessment tool developed as an international collaborative initiative, in the context of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). This paper discusses how the tool works and emphasizes two major contributions: firstly, drawing a snapshot in the measurement of Sustainability Literacy worldwide at the present time, and secondly, providing an open tool to raise awareness on sustainability. The Sulitest enables higher education institutions (HEI’s) to assess that they are producing sustainability literate graduates and to engage multiple stakeholders in accelerating the integration of sustainability in higher education standards and beyond.
