Education for sustainable development (ESD) is an education that enables people to think and act in a way that is fit for the future. It enables each individual to understand the impact of their own actions on the world and thus to shape their living environment in a sustainable way.

ESD is a holistic and transformative education. The goal of ESD at universities is to enable students to deal with the major challenges of our time, to develop sustainable solutions and to actively take responsibility for society.
