Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Science, Technology and Environment Partnership (STEP) Centre, Ministry of Education, Brunei Darussalam

“UNESCO should reaffirm the centrality of education for development. As United Nations lead agency, UNESCO should advocate a more coherent coordination of good governance, quality education, financing education and reducing disparities based on gender or income. We should aspire to inclusive quality education – primary, secondary and higher...I am convinced that Education for Sustainable Development based on the interdependence of environment, economy, society and cultural diversity, is the key to a better and more just world of the 21st century.” (Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO on Education – the Road Ahead)
