Supporting Sustainable Development through Educational Resources: A Voluntary Code of Practice.
Council for Environmental Education, London (England).
The aim of this document is to raise the standards of educational resources designed to support education for sustainable development. In achieving this goal, the Code of Practice has two underlying objectives: (1) to promote and disseminate good practice in the development and production of resources relating to education for sustainable development; and (2) to raise the status of the role of education in achieving the move towards sustainability. This guide sets forth 10 principles of good practice for the development and production of educational resources. Each principle is supported by a number of guidance statements that exemplify good practice and represent the means by which these principles can be achieved. (CCM)
