The keynote will focus on sustainable development and education. This presentation will initially address the rise of a ‘global education’ in the contemporary world. This will involve a concise examination of some of the contrasting configurations of ‘global education’, including the comparisons in performance in International Large-scale Assessments and initiatives such as global citizenship, development education and sustainable development and education. The keynote will then position sustainable development and education within the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Goals. The United Nations is quite clear that there are three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental. This will be followed by a focus on one aspect of sustainable development and education: environmental issues, and a discussion of the claims that sustainable development and education needs to be transformational.
