Education for Sustainable Development

Our vision on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) helps determine Djapo's direction. But why are we convinced that ESD can contribute to quality education? You can read about it in our theoretical framework 'The school as a place for practice'.

ESD or GCE: what's in a name?

School as a place for practice aims to build confidence in children and young people around their own ability to shape society themselves.
