The Curriculum Frame- work is targeted at curriculum designers, planners and senior executives at different levels of the educational system, and also directly at schools and their partners. This resource for educators lays out the philosophy of EDS and how to implement them across disciplines.
The publication is intended to guide readers on how to use education, and in particular ESD, in achieving the Sustinable Development Goals. 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.
The Sustainability Teachers’ Academy team is committed to creating and providing curricular resources that span a diverse range of topics—including food systems sustainability, quality of life and well-being, decision-making for sustainability, and much more. Our lessons are applicable for grades 6-9 with variations presented that will enable you to tailor the activity for a younger or older audience.
The purpose of the publication is to describe ways in which education for sustainable development (ESD) can be integrated into primary,middle and secondary schooling. This collection of briefs is designed to complement other ESD materials published by UNESCO. The topics for the briefs were selected in consultation with UNESCO Field Offices and Institutes. The briefs for primary and secondary teachers are specifically written for professional educators who work in formal education settings. The briefs for teachers as well as those for decision-makers address “gaps” in the UNESCO ESD literature.

This resource includes the Guide to Education for Sustainability which introduces Education for Sustainability (EFS) to educators and administrators and to provide additional information to enhance the work of those already engaged in EFS. As well as a Starter Kit in the form of lessons which includes what schools need to start using sustainability as an integrating theme, and to catalyze school change with efficient use of existing resources and without regard to geographic limitations.
