Rapid, sweeping, and long-lasting change is altering our planet’s environment in an unprecedented manner. It will require a wholesale change in the way we think and the way we act – a rethink of how we relate to one another and how we interact with the ecosystems that support our lives. This is where education has a critical role to play. Education for Sustainable Development is about shaping a better tomorrow for all – and it must start today. Based on large-scale implementation experiences in many schools in Bhutan and Vietnam, we will explore how, beginning with early education, we can offer children a sound foundation that can empower them to make positive contributions towards a sustainable future, while at the same time helping them to develop the competencies they will need to be responsible citizens in tomorrow’s society.
