How were the colleagues in the case study discussing the concept of sustainable development?
Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of current and future generations. Since development is creating both positive outcomes and problems, sustainable development requires us to include the environment, social justice, economic well being and equity, gender justice, and indigenous knowledge into curriculum and programmes. Not everyone knows how to do this, and our societies are all learning to improve development thinking and practice so that it can meet the needs of current and future generations, therefore we can also think of sustainable development as a learning process – we are all learning our way towards a more sustainable, just future for all, including other life forms. This is why we need to give attention to Education for Sustainable Development in our societies and communities.
