The Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn T.D., today launched a public consultation on the development of a National Strategy for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
The development of a National Strategy for ESD is one of the commitments in Our Sustainable Future – A Framework for Sustainable Development in Ireland which was published by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government in 2012.
The Minister acknowledged that his Department had undertaken previous work in this area in 2007. This included a public consultation process by the then Department of Education and Science. However, in light of the many significant changes that have occurred in the field of sustainable development since 2007, including the publication of Our Sustainable Future, the Minister considers that a new public consultation process is necessary.
