Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is the proactive teaching and integration of sustainability across the curriculum, not just within courses directly titled or related to sustainable development.

At Edge Hill University we aim to provide students with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes to work and live in a way that is sustainable. ESD encompasses environmental, social, and economic factors.

Sustainability is listed as one of the graduate attributes, as a core skill. Graduates with this attribute are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future.
