Education for Sustainable Development

‘Education for Sustainability’ - The National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development in Ireland, 2014-2020 provides a framework to support the contribution of the education system towards a more sustainable future at a number of levels: individual, community, local, national and international.

The National Strategy aims to ensure that education contributes to sustainable development by equipping learners at all levels with the relevant knowledge (the ‘what’), the key dispositions and skills (the ‘how’), the values (the ‘why’) that will motivate and empower them throughout their lives to become informed active citizens who take action for a more sustainable future.
