"All the SDGs come down to education." - Malala Yousafzai

Flemish teacher educators collaborate to explore ways to integrate Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) within their own teaching practices. We are developing an integrated educational curriculum where sustainability takes a central role. This approach aims for impactful education because we believe that Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can transform educational systems by...

  • ...supporting students and learners in developing competencies such as systems thinking, anticipatory and strategic thinking, interpersonal skills, research competencies, and self-awareness,
  • ...guiding young people towards becoming engaged citizens who dare to choose innovative solutions, aimed at a sustainable transformation of society,
  • ...adding a higher purpose that goes beyond preparing for the job market.

Our questions:

  • What is the role of the future teacher in terms of sustainability education?
  • How can you, together with colleagues, prepare students for their role as sustainable teachers of the future?
  • How do you create support for the structural integration of ESD at the level of education, campus, or university?
