Education for Sustainable Development: Challenges, Strategies, and Practices in a Globalizing World carves a path for future educators. It demonstrates that to pursue education for sustainable development, it is vital that one crosses disciplinary, institutional, and epistemological borders. The articles explore sustainable development as a process that embraces issues related to environment, poverty, health, security, democracy, gender, and human rights; they conceive sustainable development education as focusing on the holistic development of the body and mind. This idea is also central to the Gandhian tradition of life knowledge and ‘Nai Talim’ (New Education).

This collection focuses on the creation of sustainable education practices that are integrated into and relevant to the needs and practices of the larger world. It also dwells upon the failure of traditional education practices in addressing the problems of globalization.

The uniqueness of this compilation is in the multiple perspectives it provides, establishing workable links between local communities, governments and international organizations to enable sustainable development. It would be a rich reference resource for those working in the fields of education, globalization, Southeast Asian Studies, humanities, cultural studies, social and political sciences, economics and development studies.
