    What is known about the topic in our TE from all the videos is that issues of cross-cutting is being addressed in our curriculum. For example in Social Studies, Agriculture, Science and Technology. Talk about the impact of climate change that is caused by humans.
    What is not known is how to deal with what causes climate change because human activities wil not stop.
    There is need to integrate the issue of climate change in all the learning subjects at TE so that students should be well conversant with the climate change and the causes and how to overcome.

    How this learning action has helped you to re-view your Teacher Education programmes?
    Learning Action 1 has helped me understand differences SD and ESD as well as their similarities then relate with what I teach. It has further helped me to relate the my institution’s mission and vision statement with SDGs and ESD.
    – How can you work towards a more critical understanding of SD and ESD in your context?
    The first thing is to identify the gaps which are there.
    – What still needs to be discussed and taken forward?
    When teaching students make sure there is integration the content with SD

    – Can you prepare some suggestions for colleagues/your department/your TE institution? What would you emphasize?
    There must be emphasis on how Teacher Educators integrate or incorporate ESD in their daily planning and teaching against the allocated time in the curriculum.

    Learning Action 1 has helped me understand differences between SD and ESD as well as similarities and relate with my daily teaching/content.
    – How can you work towards a more critical understanding of SD and ESD in your context?
    There is need to identify the existing gaps in the TE curriculum so that it is in line with the SDG 4, Target 7 and ensure that the ESD is the focus of the learning that goes on everyday.
    – What still needs to be discussed and taken forward?
    Assessment part has been missing in line with ESD. So, there is need to work more towards assessment of student participation in the projects under ESD so that this can also be part of the final score in all subjects assessed. Furthermore, find out the extent the SDGs and ESD have been implemented in the curriculum at TE level.

    It should be a must for every teacher trainer to
    incorporate ESD in their daily planning and teaching against the allocated time in the curriculum. Another thing is students should be involved more in all Change Projects hence acquiring sustainable skills

    My understanding of Sustainable development is that it takes into account natural resources by preserving resources for future generations at the same time takes into consideration of the developmental activities one must do with the resources/nature.
    SD issues affecting my community include effects of climate change such as drought, floods, poverty among others

    ESD reflects on the understanding of SD in the sense that students should reflect on ways of how they can focus and be engaged with issues concerning their community and how to address those issues.

    Sustainable development is a process. Therefore, there is need to first assess the situation together with teachers, students as well as the community.

    I enjoyed the case study of Mary Mount teachers of Zimbabwe. They were cleaning their sorrounding area to collect waste which they used in the garden. Thereafter they have good produce. There is the issue of recycling here. They didnt go and just dump the waste no but they used it as manue. Inturn they had good produce from the garden which they sold and have income to reduce poverty.

    We should make use of the environment as much as possible
