From UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development

Today any well-informed high school student could make a long list of ways in which humankind is causing its own demise. Gaining awareness of the extent of sustainability problems is only half the project of becoming educated these days. The second half is about appropriate skills to foster the regeneration of natural capital of soils, forests, watersheds and wild areas. It is about learning the social skills to restore broken communities and to create new communities that are working models of viability. It is about integrated design skills, which promote sustainable urban planning within the carrying capacity of our planet’s resources. It is about relearning the practices of good farming; and learning the science of powering civilization on efficient and renewable energies, while creating long-term economic, political, and moral arrangements that secure the wellbeing of present and future generations.
