Lifelong learning is a key component of innovation and interest in sustainable development by the UN, national governments, and NGOs. Through good schooling, higher education, professional training and development, and awareness-raising, people can be helped to understand emerging issues about the need for change, as well as to engage in the debate and critique of the issues.
In this new primer, "Sustainable Development and Learning," and its accompanying book of readings, the authors explore the role of lifelong learning in sustainable development. Together the books set out the key issues, and raise important concepts for discussion, reflection, and ongoing considerations by readers. They can be used individually, and also share a common structure so that they can be used in tandem.
This primer is a contextualising text and provides a comprehensive overview of the developing key issues in this fascinating field of study.
