This paper presents pedagogical approaches developed and implemented to deliver Sustainable Design Education (SDE) to second year undergraduate students on civil engineering programmes in the (then) School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Newcastle University. In doing so the work presented offers an example of how to help students understand the contested and contingent nature of sustainability. Design/methodology/approach: The research presented takes an action-based approach to the development of a teaching and assessment model centred on problem-based and project-based learning in a real world context.
