English abstract
This paper examines how education for sustainable development (ESD) can be concretely advanced using the theoretical approaches of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and sustainable livelihoods (SL). Five case examples illustrate a diverse set of strategic educational interventions focusing on: (1) education of specific organizational actors about these theoretical frameworks illustrated with case examples, (2)regional education strategies focussed on production and consumption in specific sectors, (3)social learning directed at innovation for sustainable development, (4) education of consumers and firms made possible by the adoption of certification systems affirming SCP and SL or (5) reorienting communities to address underutilized productive physical capital within communities. The cases are drawn from the projects that the UNU-IAS, four of its regional centers of expertise (RCE) on ESD and other affiliates have conducted. In addition to documenting the educational processes emerging from specific regions, the paper highlights findings related to the sucess of these projects and opportunities for further research, including regional and inter-regional approaches.
