The Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) initiative reiterates the importance of education although in a sustainable development context and aims to ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development. In order to aptly respond to the diverse and evolving issues of climate change, poverty and sustainable production, ESD uses innovative pedagogy, encouraging teaching and learning in an interactive, learnercentred way that enables exploratory, action-oriented and transformative learning. Learners are enabled to think critically and systematically develop values and attitudes for a sustainable future. Given such, the ESD constitutes a vital stepping-stone towards the achievement of the other 16 SDGs.
