dc.descriptionThis publication presents the first curated contribution to the global debate on the futures of education. A selection of 48 think pieces by over one hundred authors from 65 institutions presented in this volume were selected from 178 submissions by 400+ authors received in response to the call for contributions. The main findings were presented to the International Commission on the Futures of Education at their first meeting.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe authors elaborate on the dangers of rampant consumerism and attempt to explain why most humans are disconnected from the realities of our depleting planet and are not taking action to instigate change to ensure a more sustainable future. They argue that education for sustainable development will play a key role in transforming citizens of this Earth to assume fully their roles as environmental stewards.en_US
