The United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, Its Consequences for International Political Education, and the Concept of Global Learning
Brunold, Andreas Otto
International Education Journal, v7 n3 p222-234 2006
Globalisation is one of the most important historical features that education is likely to experience in this century. The processes of globalisation need to be integrated with a set of social, technological, economic, cultural and ecological circumstances, so that people may begin to accept the fact that the world is facing a totally irreversible universal phenomenon. The concept of sustainable development integrates the factors that lead to a demand for global learning, education for sustainable development, and environmental education. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure, and 3 footnotes.)
