Sustainability plan launched

Germany has agreed on a national action plan in line with Unesco’s Education for Sustainable Development initiative.

The plan, which was commissioned by the federal education ministry and compiled by a working group, features 130 objectives and 349 recommendations. Its aim is to make sustainable development a part of all education structures and curricula in Germany, leading to a gradual change in how people think about and work towards more sustainable living.

In a statement on 20 June, Johanna Wanka, Germany’s federal education minister, described the plan as the starting point for a better future. “This is a milestone. Now it’s a matter of implementation, which will only work as a joint venture. Sustainability affects us all,” she said.
