Quality Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship should not be confined to the classroom, or to one teacher. It is an approach which involves the whole curriculum, management, governors and educators of the school, not merely an ‘add on’ subject. It involves partnerships that the school forms with organisations and the local community. It has its roots in environmental education and development education.
As a result, many of the building blocks of education for sustainable development and global citizenship are already present in every school.
Education for Sustainable Development
Enables people to develop the knowledge, values and skills to participate in decisions about the way we do things individually and collectively, both locally and globally, that will improve the quality of life now without damaging the planet for the future.
Education for Global Citizenship
Enables people to understand the global forces which shape their lives and to acquire the knowledge, skills and values that will equip them to participate in decision making, both locally and globally, which promotes a more equitable and sustainable world.
