Sustainable Development is not determined from the top down. We can envisage it as an individual and societal search and learning process by all members of society – aimed at shaping alternative pathways. A participatory process such as this requires all actors to possess the relevant knowledge and skills. Education for Sustainable Development is thus a key component of the educational mandate set by the canton of Bern – also for the university. The ESD-UniBe Team offers workshops, advice, materials, and networking to help teaching staff implement this important task.
