This Special Issue will comprise a selection of papers addressing relations between geographical education and sustainability with a special focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Education in Sustainable Development Objectives is a basic step in attaining these goals, and, therefore, it has been undertaken by broad sectors of the teaching community. Nevertheless, the “sustainability curriculum” is not an easy task. Still, it is a necessary step for the achievement of SDGs.
Adequate pedagogical tools and resources make possible an education in geography for global understanding, through the integration of Sustainable Development Goals into the learning and teaching process.
Some key research questions are:
- How can we approach SDGs from the perspective of higher education?
- How can we do this in geographical education?
- How it is possible to achieve and evaluate results?
- Is it possible to educate in landscape for the SDG?
Prof. Dr. María Luisa de Lázaro y Torres
