The OPEDUCA Project proposed a new paradigm for ESD in 2004 by basing education on sustainable development, acknowledging the transmissive and realising the transformative value of education.
Following extensive applications in practice and scientific research the concept will be presented and illustrated here as of June 2021.
At present there are differences of opinion … for all people do not agree
as to the things that the young ought to learn,
either with a view to virtue or with a view to the best life,
nor is it clear whether their studies should be regulated more with regard to intellect or character.
Aristotle (384-322 BC)
The OPEDUCA Project and -Concept delivers on the transformative promise of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) by placing it at the base of schooling.
