Editor's note/Nota editorial.
In mid-2012, RBPG--Revista Brasileira de Pos-Graduacao--published an edict for academic works that focused on sustainable development, aiming to contribute to the reflections that emerged during Rio-United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, specifically in relation to the advances made by postgraduate studies in the production of knowledge on this topic. In answer to this edict, 45 articles were submitted and, among these, 13 were selected for the special issue published at the beginning of this year.
When the special issue was published, the President of Capes and the Scientific Commission created to assess the articles received decided to publish the issue also in English, hoping to guarantee that the selected works would be widely accessible, which was coherent with the global relevance of the topic and with the important role of Brazil in the production of knowledge on this topic. With the agreement of the respective authors, this issue is the literal translation into English of the collection of articles in thematic issue number 21, entitled Postgraduate Education and Sustainable Development. Besides being as close as possible to the original texts, the English translation tries to feature the same images as in the original issue, related to the topics addressed at Rio such as water, energy, mobility, sustainable food production and environmental protection.
