Abstract This paper evaluates the process and outcomes of an action learning research project undertaken during 2005 entitled 'Beyond Leather Patches' (BELP), which aimed to embed sustainability principles in non-traditional disciplines at RMIT University, Australia. The BELP project drew on the insights of previous attempts to address education for sustainability at RMIT and sought to achieve lasting change in organisational structure/operations and curriculum content. The academics who participated in the project were involved in curriculum audits, workshops, and renewal of their curricula and a culture of open collaboration and reflective practice were actively encouraged.
