Programme Overview

With the growing population and limited natural resources, individuals and societies need to learn how to live together sustainably. Therefore, the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) programme was developed to empower students, youths and educators to transform the way they think and work towards a sustainable future.

It is developed using the framework recommended by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which promotes behavioural change using economic, social, environmental and cultural dimensions. Using participatory teaching and learning methods, youths and children are encouraged to make collaborative decisions on local issues while also looking at the global impacts.
This will enable them to understand the connection between the vulnerable nature and harmful impacts of human activities. The four (4) strategies we employ targets not only the formal education system in the country but also institutions of government and society at large.
