Education for Sustainable Development


An important distinction is the difference between education about sustainable development and education for sustainable development. The first is an awareness lesson or theoretical discussion. The second is the use of education as a tool to achieve sustainability. In our opinion, more than a theoretical discussion is needed at this critical juncture in time. While some people argue that "for" indicates indoctrination, we think "for" indicates a purpose. All education serves a purpose or society would not invest in it.

Education for sustainable development

McKeown, R. (2002). The ESD Toolkit 2.0. Web-published document.

The ESD toolkit is a valuable resource for all educational efforts about sustainable development. It also contains definitions of sustainable development and the 18 principles of sustainability as fleshed out by the Rio Declaration of Environment and Development.
