In November 2018, the Foundation for Environmental Education released the publication Positive Actions for the Sustainable Development Goals. The publication was launched at the Eco-Schools National Operators Meeting (NOM) in Cork, Ireland, which coincided with the commence of 25th Anniversary Celebrations of the programme.
The Eco-Schools programme has positive action competence at its core. Eco-Schools is Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Action. The SDGs provide us with a vision and a call for action for a sustainable Earth. ESD provides quality education that actively involves citizens of our global village in ensuring harmony between all life forms so that there will be enough, for everyone, forever.
In its current form, the publication is a framework that has articulated positive actions as behavioural learning outcomes contributing to the achievement of every SDG through the process of ESD. The next step is to illustrate the process of ESD in the form of lesson plans to help educators understand how they can achieve these learning outcomes in a formal education setting.
