Education for Sustainable Development Resources

CLT ESD Reasources 

In 2004, Forum for the Future and the Higher Education Partnership for Sustainability (HEPS), of which the University of Brighton is a member, published Learning and skills for sustainable development: developing a sustainability literate society.

They suggested that the Brundtland definition quoted above, "while apt, needed expanding if it was to provide a useful operational framework. The UK government, for example, defines sustainable development as meeting four objectives at the same time, in the UK and the world as a whole:

• effective protection of the environment
• prudent use of natural resources

• maintenance of high and stable levels of economic growth and employment."
