In the new Transforming of our world, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has stated that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development (United Nations, A/RES/70/1, 2015, 17). Consequently, and also with the great proliferation of knowledge and the rapid changes in the field of Science and Technology, it is important to develop students' capacity for self-direction and self-growth. To meet students' needs, teachers should use different teaching approaches. A special issue of Education Sciences welcome all articles discussing work methods in Science subjects, in relation to students' competence and learning outcomes. Articles can discuss both conventional and new methods through which sustainability can be promoted and what kinds of problems and challenges teachers and students meet during teaching, studying, and learning processes. Articles can be review or empirical research.
