The Council has adopted conclusions on education for sustainable development (ESD).

This is virtually the first time the Council has tackled the issue of ESD, integrating economic, social and environmental perspectives. The conclusions stress that sustainable development aspects should be mainstreamed into all areas of education and training. The Council invites member states to support education for sustainable development by featuring it in national lifelong learning strategies and by equipping teachers and trainers with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required.
