International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice: Final Report

The International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice, a project of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, has issued its final report. Funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the report, International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice: Final Report (100 pages, PDF), highlights the need for more "generalist" practitioners — those who understand the complexities of various fields and can coordinate among them — and graduate degree programs focused on sustainable development and outlines a series of recommendations for building a comprehensive new system of professional education for sustainable development practitioners.
