This chapter starts with an overview of the History and context of Green universities in China. It then discusses the higher education as a change agent for sustainability and concepts behind “green universities”. It illustrates the “green university” in China by using Tsinghua University as an example. Actions and practices of other green universities in China are also presented. It identifies the significant challenges for promoting ESD and developing green universities, and proposes a framework of “green universities” that consists of three major dimensions.
