Moving towards sustainability will require changing the way we think, live and work. This was highlighted at the recent World Summit on Sustainable Development, held in Johannesburg. The Summit recognised that our current actions are leading to environmental degradation, poor quality of life and associated human suffering. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is vital to our future and to improving quality of life. Geography education has a critical contribution to make to help us shift towards sustainability and the UN Decade provides an important platform for helping us reflect and define what this contribution might be.
