Environmental and Sustainable Development Education (EEDD) aims to make contemporary ecological, economic and social issues as widely recognised as possible. It allows everyone to understand the complexity and interdependence of these issues, in order to make citizens into agents of ecological transition. EEDD must equip society with the tools necessary to effect the changes that must be made to our modes of production and consumption, and way of life on a planet with limited resources.
