By 2050 sustainability will be a crosscutting theme in our education system. Children will learn relevant knowledge and skills in sustainable development from a young age, based on relevant issues and independently developed teaching material. Teaching in traditional classroom settings will be alternated with participatory learning, with a high degree of interdisciplinary collaboration. Young people will have a say in educational establishments’ sustainability policy. Educational facilities will serve as examples for the circular society. The school will be at the heart of the community which in turn will provide opportunities for learning. Retraining and further training in sustainable development will be accessible to everyone, different generations will learn from each other as a result of active collaboration and there will be a strong focus on training sustainability teachers.
