Special issue on education for sustainable development
Articles in this special issue focus on Education for Sustainability (EfS) at different academic levels and adopt different theoretical approaches. Some articles analyze EfS in course curricula, while others investigate projects involving EfS. The literature review in the final article provides a complete view of the current situation of EfS in the world.

The first article is being introduced in all the primary schools in Suriname—South America. It focuses on teaching children about the environment in a positive and practical way, thereby encouraging interaction.


The following two articles are involved in the relationship between secondary education and university.


Sustainability in the undergraduate curriculum is analyzed in the next two articles. 


Two other articles analyze sustainability in graduate courses, one of them in Brazil and another in the UK.


The next article is a case study on the subject of energy. 


The following article discusses social learning as a potential framework for strengthening the role of sustainable actions through educational initiatives.


Finally, this article is a bibliometric study of international journals.
