To enable strategic focus and foster stakeholder commitment, the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has identified five priority action areas to advance the ESD agenda.
Mainstream ESD into both education and sustainable development policies, to create an enabling environment for ESD and to bring about systemic change
Integrate sustainability principles into education and training settings
Increase the capacities of educators and trainers to more effectively deliver ESD
Multiply ESD actions among youth
At community level, scale up ESD programmes and multi-stakeholder ESD networks
