Path to Sustainable Future
Education for Sustainable Development

Sustainability

Teachers have the power to create the future. Therefore, KDP aims to inspire teachers to prepare learners for future global challenges. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), those challenges can only be met through a transformation in education that leads to the achievement of critical global sustainability goals. A quality education, listed among UNESCO’s 17 sustainable development goals, is one that “aims to ensure quality learning outcomes for all.” A quality education integrates an understanding of eco-social planetary issues through hands-on, project-based, student-centered learning. The outcome is an education for a sustainable future. Students who are equipped with a quality education will have the ability, ambition, and know-how to shape a world that works for every person and every creature, now and into the future.
What is sustainable development? The ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. (Brundtland Report) Let’s prepare the next generation to be a sustainable generation through Education for Sustainability!
KDP Endorses Education for Sustainability (EfS)
KDP, as a non-governmental organization (NGO) affiliated with the United Nations, is proud to advocate for the advancement of education for sustainability. While we have made some progress, we can’t do it alone. As educators and citizens of the global community, you play a critical role, not only with your students but also in your own commitment to increase actions that lead to a more sustainable way of life—in the community, in classrooms and schools, and at home. For change to happen, we must model change through our hearts, minds, and actions.
