Exploring the important role of education in both pursuing and implementing sustainable development, this timely Handbook highlights how teaching methods at schools and universities can impact the future. It looks at ways not only to inform students about matters related to sustainable development, but also how to empower them to adopt behaviours and actions that lead to more sustainable lifestyles.
 
Chapters from an international team of contributors present and analyse experiences of different learning processes and methods, showcasing the impact of curriculum-related issues and teacher training. Using different pedagogical approaches, case studies and interdisciplinary initiatives, the Handbook explores a broad range of technological approaches and tools to foster better teaching and learning for sustainable development. It provides key insights into the implementation of teaching initiatives in helping to promote sustainable development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
 
This Handbook will be crucial reading for those investigating curriculum policies and issues and looking to enhance students’ understanding of sustainability in schools and universities.
Critical Acclaim
'This is a Handbook that focuses on two key aspects of our daily lives: sustainability and education. They are presented in a way which develops a sense of internalisation and ownership as the ever increasing links between the two aspects are fleshed out. The Handbook is well organised and utilises a diverse array of case studies from different regions and continents and a tapestry of different methodologies. This adds to the richness of the work as it manages to engage the reader with a pragmatic approach to re-orient existing educational practices towards sustainability. The Handbook is a welcome addition to the growing literature on sustainability and education and offers more than just a glimmer of hope that sustainability can be achieved through education – it offers an actual path.’
– Mark Mifsud, University of Malta, Malta

‘Walter Leal and his team have been tireless advocates for the power of education to advance the UN sustainable development goals. Now, at a time when the world needs fresh ideas for sustainability as it never has before, this book provides a resource that should be used across the globe.’
– Eric Pallant, Allegheny College, US
