Unesco on learning objectives for sustainable development
Unesco has released a new document titled Education for Sustainable Development Goals: Learning Objectives (ESD)
On 25 September 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN, 2015) – there are 17 goals, see image below.
“ESD aims at developing competencies that empower individuals to reflect on their own actions, taking into account their current and future social, cultural, economic and environmental impacts, from a local and a global perspective. Individuals should also be empowered to act in complex situations in a sustainable manner, which may require them to strike out in new directions; and to participate in socio-political processes, moving their societies towards sustainable development.” (p. 7).
This resource discusses key competencies for sustainability (There is general agreement that sustainability citizens need to have certain key competencies that allow them to engage constructively and responsibly with today’s world.p. 10) and a series of objective to support the 17 goals.
