The Sustainability Starts with Teachers is an action learning progamme centred around a contextually defined Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Change Project. During this course, you will be developing an ESD Change Project within your institution that is relevant to your context.
The change project is an institutional change initiative, and therefore needs to be collectively developed with others in the institution. We use the term ‘community of practice’ to indicate the need to work with others on the practice of developing an institutional ESD Change Project. The purpose is to develop innovative, exemplary ESD practices that can be more widely shared in the SADC Region, and internationally within Africa, and the UNESCO and SARUA networks and structures.
