Education for sustainable development is a practical vision of education that seeks to empower people to assume responsibility for creating a sustainable future. Central to ESD is the concept of cultural ecology as an essential underlying theme. It has been acknowledged that there is no “single route” to sustainable development. There are many different stakeholders in sustainable development (i.e., governments, businesses, educational institutions, media, youth, etc). Each of these sectors has a different vision of sustainable development and how it can contribute. Some are interested in environmental preservation and protection, some have economic development interests while others may be more interested in social development. In addition, how each nation, cultural group and individual views sustainable development will depend on its own values.
