Sterling, Stephen – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2016
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are viewed in the context of Johan Rockstr├Âm's work on planetary boundaries at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. This work sets a double challenge to educational policy and practice: to embrace and help achieve the Goals, but also to work towards a deeper change in consciousness which can reconcile people…

Lenglet, Frans – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2014
In order to have long-term impact ESD concepts, practices and policies should move into societal, policy and research arenas with high visibility and traction. In the process of going "transboundary", the ESD label may fade but the practice and organization of social and collaborative learning may gain.

Taylor, Jim – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2014
This paper explores how ESD activities may be viewed on a continuum from "causal" approaches, seeking to cause change in others, to "enabling" orientations where efforts are made to enable people to implement the principles of ESD and respond to the environmental challenges they face from their own context. An enabling…

Tilbury, Daniella – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
The sustainable development arguments we practiced in 1992 are now well rehearsed and as poignant as they were 20 years ago. Evidence compiled in the lead up to the forthcoming Rio Summit suggests that as a global community we have not learned to change. The question then becomes: what, if anything, have we learnt from this experience?

Hopkins, Charles – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
As one of 12 members of the drafting committee of Agenda 21's Chapter 36, "Education, Public Awareness and Training", Charles Hopkins reflects on the process of working on the now-famous document. Although it was noncontroversial at the time, Chapter 36 spawned education for sustainable development when it was given to UNESCO to administer within…

Monroe, Martha C. – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
William B. Stapp, a major author of the founding documents of environmental education (EE), foreshadowed the triple concerns of education for sustainable development (ESD) with environment, social justice and economic health. Yet EE in the USA tended to follow the advocacy orientation of the environmental movement of the 1970s and later, following…

Jickling, Bob; Wals, Arjen E.J. – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
In this dialogue between two friends and colleagues with different takes on education for sustainability, Canadian environmental education scholar Bob Jickling argues that education "for" any cause is not true education, which should strive to prepare minds to create new ideas, not follow a doctrine. Since we don't have solutions to…

Fadeeva, Zinaida; Galkute, Laima – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
In defining quality of higher education, competences achieved by graduates are interpreted as essential criteria. There are two political processes in education dealing, among other issues, with competence development: the Bologna Process in European Higher Education Area and a global process--the United Nations (UN) Decade (2005-2014) of…

McKeown, Rosalyn – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
Over the past 20 years education for sustainable development (ESD) has become part of the discourse in teacher education and the teaching community has a better grasp of ESD's action-oriented and participatory pedagogies. The International Network of Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) associated with the UNESCO Chair on Reorienting Teacher…

Hirche, Walter – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2012
Youth unemployment is a huge challenge for sustainable development in our societies. Statistics offer an alarming picture of the involvement of youth in the labour markets on a global scale. Germany, due to a strong tradition in vocational education and training deeply rooted in its culture, has very low rates of youth unemployment. The so-called…

Wals, Arjen E. J. – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2011
Should environmental education (EE) and education for sustainable development (ESD) try to change students' behaviours or should it focus on capacity building and critical thinking? The latter is more likely to lead to a citizenry that can examine new challenges and act wisely. New forms of learning are entering the arena of EE and ESD such as…

Huckle, John – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2010
In this article, the author argues for a more critical form of education for sustainable development (ESD) linked to global citizenship education. He does so by reference to the limitations of the "green new deals" being carried out as part of fiscal stimulus packages, the alternatives proposed by ecosocialists, and the partly conflicting and…

Selby, David; Kagawa, Fumiyo – Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, 2010
Education for sustainable development (ESD) is the latest and thickest manifestation of the "closing circle" of policy-driven environmental education. Characterised by definitional haziness, a tendency to blur rather than lay bare inconsistencies and incompatibilities, and a cozy but ill-considered association with the globalisation agenda, the…
