ESD allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.
Sustainable development is an evolving concept with three major and interconnected dimensions - environmental, economic and social. Our responsibility is to manage and improve the quality of life of the global population in ways that will not harm the lives of future generations.
ESD may involve incorporating key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning; for example, climate change, biodiversity, poverty reduction and social justice. It may also involve motivating and empowering learners to change their behaviour and take action for a sustainable future.
