ESD is awesome...right? - Why "Education for Sustainable Development" ist not as good as it seems.

"Education for Sustainable Development" is favored especially by Germany and other countries of the global north. But little is know about the problematic aspects of the concept. This talk approaches ESD critically and lights out why it stabilizes in its current form global power asymmetries and colonial thinking patterns. Following this line we will claim and discuss possibilities to break free of old paradigms. Furthermore we'll give best practice examples as well as ideas for Universities and individuals to change their use of ESD.
