Framework

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future. ESD means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning. The United Nations has adopted the UNESCO Roadmap for implementing the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development.

The GAP has two objectives:
* to reorient education and learning so that everyone has the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that empower them to contribute to sustainable development – and make a difference;
* to strengthen education and learning in all agendas, programmes and activities that promote sustainable development.

The Learning Teacher Network is an official UNESCO GAP Key Partner on the capacity building of educators and trainers (GAP, Priority Action Area 3).

The Sustainable Development Goal number 4 “Quality Education” – within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
