This course on Education for Sustainable Development for Social Transformation explains the connection between sustainable development, education and the successful implementation of national and international policies and initiatives on Sustainable Development, such as the Education for Sustainable Development Framework, Global Citizenship Education and the post-2015 Development Agenda. A particular focus is placed on Viet Nam's implementation of these initiatives, including MOET's Action Plan to Implement the National Strategy on Natural Disaster Prevention, Control and Mitigation in the Education Sector in the 2011-2020 Period.

The courses promote creative thinking and a holistic approach to some of our planet's most pressing issues. A contribution to sustainable development will be made by encouraging students, families, schools and communities to be bioliterate.
