Further Background: What is ESD? Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) supports learners across all academic disciplines and subject areas to create and pursue visions of a better world. A world that recognises the interdependence of environmental integrity, social justice and economic prosperity, while acknowledging that environmental resources are finite and provide the foundation for our society and economy. ESD develops competencies – skills, attributes and values – and how they link to subject knowledge and knowledge of sustainable development. This is a key priority for students and young people. Longitudinal survey data from Students Organising for Sustainability (UK) highlights that 80% of UK students want their institutions to be doing more on sustainability and the majority want to learn more about it.
