Abstract

This talk shares two projects or experiences, firstly, a competence framework in education for sustainable development (ESD) that is designed for educators working in any sector and with any age group and secondly, an approach that I worked on over a decade ago. We called it Smart Business Thinking and it attempted to build ESD into work-based learning. That was when I was working full time for a TVET networking organisation in South-west England. The idea proved popular with trainers in a number of different commercial sectors and, given the focus of this workshop, it seems appropriate to at least mention this approach.
