Education for Sustainable Development: Two sides and an edge

DEA publishes Thinkpieces to create debate on issues related to policy, theory and practice.

In this Thinkpiece, Paul Vare and William Scott use the distinction they have made between ESD 1, learning for sustainable development, and ESD 2, learning as sustainable development, in order to comment on the issue of Fairtrade and the different approaches that might be taken, ie, seeing this as something to promote as a ‘good thing’, and something to critically explore as a complex and contentious sustainable development issue. They consider the relationship between these approaches and the importance of critical literacy.
