The importance of education in promoting sustainable development has been widely recognised by the international education community. Crucial to enabling individuals to confront new challenges, education thus plays a vital role in achieving sustainable development. It provides people with the necessary knowledge, values, and attitudes to address emerging and key sustainability development issues such as climate change, sustainable consumption and production, preservation of biodiversity or poverty reduction.
Sustainable development topics can be taught at all levels of education, from primary to adult education, whether formal, informal or non-formal. More and more trade union organisations across the world are incorporating sustainability education in their training offerings, thus playing an essential role in promoting sustainable development.
However, the fundamental question remains: how can trade unionists be trained to promote sustainable development? This guide aims to address this fundamental question.
