Abstract

The book is a product of collaborative learning and research project involving 14 organizations and over 30 researchers from 9 European countries. The main aim of the resear4ch was to identify, collect and systematically present the existing content most relevant to sustainable development in the national curricula of the participating countries in order to provide evidence for policy change. Our findings show that most of existing ESD-knowledge in almost all the countries is about social and cultural aspects of sustainable development. Of the skills and values elements Respect, Responsibility, reflexivity and Complexity are the foundational values in the curricula. Economic and environmental cognitive elements need greater inclusion in the national curricula in some of the countries. Shaping the existing content into a unified ESD agenda is the first task of focusing educational systems on sustainability for future generations.
