Learning to Know. Education for Sustainable Living. Practices from around the world.
Many initiatives are being taken all around the world to achieve more responsible ways of living in relation to our own lives, the lives of others and the natural environment. Our present challenge is to identify which policies and practices best facilitate education for sustainable living, what lessons can be learned from these initiatives already being carried out in different countries, and how to recreate them in other contexts.
The global Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030) clearly state that quality education is essential to achieving sustainable development in an inclusive manner for all. Peace and prosperity are dependent upon people everywhere acquiring new knowledge and skills which will help them change their consumption patterns and become more creative, compassionate and active citizens.
