Education for sustainable development (ESD) is one of EGI Strategies identified in Agenda 21 to help achieve a balance between environmental conservation,socio-cultural values and the sustainable use of natural resources.
Against this background, our ESD Program is vital in our efforts to engage pupils and young adults in activities that will empower them to take a decisive position in shaping a sustainable world.
Here EGI among other things is promoting the whole school Approach to ESD: conducting green businesses at school level,engaging parent teacher associations and local councils in teaching and learning, and in building the school estate.
Even more critically : how to teach sustainable development in different school subjects.
EGI has worked with teachers to develop Model ESD Lesson notes English language, French , Mathematics, Bilogy and Geography.
