The present text deals in a general way the way in which from the Master in Innovative Processes in Learning (MPIA) that operates as a double degree by the Centro Universitario de Los Altos (CUALTOS) of the University of Guadalajara, in collaboration with the Institute of Sciences of Education of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPCBarcelonaTECH), has tried to promote sustainability as a transversal skill that allows the institutionalization of this topic in the University System. The MPIA trains active teachers who develop their educational practice in different engineering or technological baccalaureates, among other educational centers; and the concern has arisen to propose a model to follow to institutionalize sustainability as a form of change and improvement of the educational context. In this sense, as a first point it is proposed that groups of volunteers can be generated to prepare themselves theoretically and practically with respect to how to pedagogically lead a sustainability project that in turn can be institutionalized . From this group of volunteers will be generated the leaders that would make possible the execution of the model, once institutionalized. To comply with the above, it is necessary to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), since in addition to improving the productivity and efficiency of processes in organizations, they can also contribute to sustainable development by executing public plans and programs, driven by thinking minds that seek to establish clear guidelines that can be executed in the short, medium and long term . To achieve success in the leadership of the institutionalization of the model, it will depend on the educational practices developed as part of the teacher training process, considering the 17 sustainable development objectives proposed by UNESCO
