Health is a sustainability subject with diverse intersectoral linkages across several SDGs. The scope of SDG 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages – is broad and ambitious. As highlighted through these case studies, sustainability education and participatory, multi-stakeholder learning and action have significant impact in improving health, sanitation and hygiene, nutrition as well as overall well-being. Health promotion through increased health literacy is an important contribution that the education for sustainable development (ESD) community can offer for the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education.
This book offers fresh insights from 14 case studies by the Regional Centres of Expertise Network on ESD from different regions. The richness of its diversity, the breadth of its inter-disciplinarity, and the depth of its analyses are bound to open new vistas in the discourse and policy debates on health and sustainability.
