Education for Sustainable Development Goals: Learning Objectives

Education for Sustainable Development Goals: Learning Objectives provides guidance on using Education for Sustainable Development to support progress towards the SDGs.

Embarking on the path of sustainable development will require a profound transformation of how we think and act. To create a more sustainable world and to engage with sustainability-related issues as described in the SDGs, individuals must become sustainability change-makers. They require the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that empower them to contribute to sustainable development. Education, therefore, is crucial for the achievement of sustainable development. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has to be understood as an integral part of quality education.

The publication is intended to guide readers on how to use education, and in particular ESD, in achieving the SDGs. It identifies learning objectives, suggests topics and learning activities for each SDG, and describes implementation on different levels from course design to national strategies.

The document aims to support policy-makers, curriculum developers, and educators in designing strategies, curricula, and courses to promote learning for the SDGs.

Education for Sustainable Development Goals: Learning Objectives can be read and downloaded from UNESCO's digital online library in several languages, here.
