Our paper aims at assessing the role of education in implementing the strategy for sustainable development. We show how education might be used to promote the provisions set out by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We argue that sustainable education might help to give the young people necessary knowledge and skills that are required to understand what the SDGs represent and to take part in implementing the necessary changes and mitigating the climate change and the global warming as well-informed and concerned citizens. Understanding and embracing the concept of sustainability represents one of the main issues of the society and education plays a key role in that process. Thence, we think that the role of education is sustainable development strategy is crucial which requires additional support for education from the governments and private actors.
