Together we are stronger and can give more weight to the social importance of sustainable education. To this end, we engage with politicians, ministers, policy makers and interest groups.
Although Article 21 of the Constitution guarantees the freedom of education, the quality requirements and learning objectives are determined by politicians and tested by the government. By making sustainability part of the learning objectives, working across more subjects, setting criteria to measure the degree of sustainability of an educational institution, reporting on this transparently and helping teachers with sustainable teaching materials, the government can contribute to preparing pupils and students for the society of the future.
We are collaborating on the education of tomorrow. One of the ways we do this is through our commitment to the Curriculum Review. This process started in 2018, when it was 12 years since the national core objectives and attainment targets for primary and secondary education were renewed in law. Since then, there have been several development and feedback sessions.
Depending on the progress of the Curriculum Review, we will continue to advocate for the new curriculum, in which sustainability plays such an important role, in 2022.
