ESD

Education for Sustainable Development

Introduction

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a transdisciplinary research field, studying transformative learning within formal, non-formal and informal settings. ESD works with learning processes in relation to all SDGs in Agenda 2030. ESD is about combining wicked issues such as climate change, disaster risk and overconsumption with teaching and learning frameworks. ESD looks at participatory teaching methods and high-quality learning environments, for learners to co-create their education, their world, and their future. ESD promotes sustainability competencies like critical thinking, action competence and future scenarios skills.
