ESDGC, Eco Schools

< Back to Curriculum


Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship is an approach which involves the whole curriculum and management of the school. Not merely an ‘add on’ subject, ESDGC is intended to underpin the school's ethos and be a prevalent factor in the day-to-day running of the school.

It has its roots in environmental education and development education. As a result, many of the building blocks of education for sustainable development and global citizenship are already present in every school.
