Becoming Leaders in Sustainability Education

A Handbook for Educators

The 21st century presents unique and unprecedented opportunities and challenges for humanity and the planet. How do we ensure sustainable development efforts are sustained in the long run and that we equip our future generations with the knowledge and skills for sustainable living?

Education for sustainable development (ESD) helps students understand the need for and ways to balance human development with actions that sustain and prolong healthy life on Earth.

Educators may find applying ESD in their classes difficult, with sustainability being such a broad topic. Following 14 lesson plans from 25 educators across 8 Asian countries, Becoming Leaders in Sustainability Education serves as a comprehensive resource for educators of diverse subjects to implement ESD lessons and curricula based on lived experiences and real-world examples unique to Asia.

Find curriculum and lesson plans across a variety of levels, in the subjects of:

  • Geography
  • Social Studies
  • Nutrition and agriculture
  • STEM and Engineering
  • Coding

And more! 

Help students take charge in tackling environmental challenges! In this handbook, implement ESD in your classes by learning how to:

  • apply ESD across a variety of subjects
  • adopt different pedagogical approaches in teaching ESD
  • reference concrete action plans that promote sustainable practices
