Abstract

The importance of education for sustainable development and environmental sustainability was acknowledged decades ago. Consequently, by joining to several international conventions countries across the world agreed to effectively integrate and implement education for sustainable development (ESD). However, it soon became evident that ESD must be effectively integrated into public education and crucially developed, if we really want to reduce the environmental burden caused by human activities. One possibility for this is to develop modern, interactive, ICT based educational tools which may grab the attention of students today. In this paper we present an inspiring example, the e-School4S (E-School for Sustainability in the Danube Region) Comenius project in the framework of which teachers and NGOs across borders collaborated to build interactive e-learning courses for secondary school students.
