Education for sustainable development guidance

Longhurst, Jim; Gough, Georgina


Georgina Gough
Associate Professor in Education for Sustainable Development


This is the second edition of the QAA/Advance HE Education for Sustainable Development Guidance, the first having been published in 2014. The guidance is intended to be of practical help to higher education providers (HEPs) working with students and staff to foster their knowledge, understanding and skills in the area of sustainable development (SD). It recognises that there are many ways in which this may be achieved and is not prescriptive about delivery. Instead it offers suggestions to inspire, inform and enable Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) to be facilitated as central to curricula and part of a whole-institution approach to Sustainable Development (SD).
