Environmental education towards sustainable development (EESD) is a necessity for our societies. Since the challenges are growing and becoming more complex, this education requires more than ever the implementation of voluntary and consistent policies at a European level. However, the commitments made by the governments are still too little visible on the field. Starting from this fact, more than 150 actors, associations and institutions involved in EESD from different countries participated in the drafting of the Manifesto “Educate towards environment and sustainable development “. They gathered in the Manifesto 20 proposals for an ambitious EESD in Europe that applies to the school sector, non-formal education, second grade teaching, the labor sector, to professionalism and evaluation of EESD and finally to the effective integration of EESD in the heart of European policies.
