Issues and trends in education for sustainable development
Issues and trends in Education for Sustainable Development is the fifth in UNESCO’s Education on the Move series, which reviews trends in education today and challenges for tomorrow. The series is aimed at providing policy-makers, educators and other stakeholders with state-of-the-art analyses of topical issues. As the world’s leading agency on education, UNESCO seeks to promote and stimulate this key intellectual debate on the future of education.
The present volume addresses Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), which empowers learners to take informed decisions and responsible actions for environmental integrity, economic viability and a just society, for present and future generations, while respecting cultural diversity. ESD promotes holistic and transformational education. This type of education addresses learning content and outcomes, innovative pedagogy and ‘learning by doing’, and uses a whole-school approach to engage communities in achieving sustainable change.
