ERG SES H 07, Parallel Session H 07
Education and educational organizations are regarded as “one of the most powerful tools” and a “key instrument” to bring about changes towards more sustainable, that means ecologically sound and socially just consumption patterns. While the notion of Education for Sustainable Consumption (ESC) is generally considered as an indispensable component of sustainable development strategies, it lacks institutional integration in school curricula, subjects and teacher education programs in many industrialized countries that are responsible for current unsustainable consumption patterns, among them Germany. The objective of the study presented is to identify factors that partially help to explain teachers’ engagement with the issue of sustainable consumption in their classes and subjects.
