ESD: Education for Sustainable Development

ESD: Education for Sustainable Development

Inna Yadav and Suman
Education is an important tool for achieving sustainability around the world. It is the only medium that enables people to understand work for and benefit from sustainable development. Sustainable development is a development that addresses the needs of the present without compromising the abilities of forthcoming generations to meet their specific needs. The basic principle behind sustainable development is a combination of economic, social and environmental conditions that are shared by all of us. Education for sustainability utilizes the entire education system to provide students with what they need to do to transform our societies to achieve a sustainable future. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a dynamic concept that includes a new vision of education that seeks to balance human and economic well-being with cultural traditions and respect for the earth’s natural resources. It emphasizes the importance of learning in the build-up to the transition towards sustainability with additional education in citizenship education, education for a culture of peace, gender-equal opportunity, respect for human rights, health education, population education, education for protecting and managing natural resources and education for sustainable utilization. Consequently education needs to be transformed into a constructive tool for creating awareness among students and citizens of the world. ESD uses trans disciplinary educational systems to develop ideas for permanent learning, nurtures respect for human needs that are compatible with sustainable utilization of natural resources and encourages an awareness of global solidarity. ESD is a lifelong learning process and an integral part of quality education. It enhances the cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioural dimensions of learning and encompasses learning content and outcomes, pedagogy and the learning environment itself.
