Learning for the future - competences for ESD The competences in ESD described in this document are those of educators and not of learners, although both are intricately related. They go beyond the competences that individual educators would have in order to provide a good quality education in their discipline. This set of competences is not a “minimum standard” to be met by all educators, but rather a goal to which all educators should aspire. It is not intended to prescribe behavioural outcomes; it provides a framework for the professional development of educators and is of particular importance to individuals, groups and institutions that have a multiplier effect, such as educators of educators.
