Valorizing Integrated and Action-Oriented Education for Sustainable Development at School (VALIES).

VALIES focuses on the implementation of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in formal education in Flanders. A central issue is a teacher professional development (TPD) within which teacher teams develop and implement ESD in the context of their own school. The research focuses on (1) the operationalisation of 'action competence' as the outcome of ESD, (2) the effectiveness of the TPD (3) the effectiveness of ESD (4) the role school culture, en (5) the role of social contexts. The project will result in tools that aim to facilitate the implementation of ESD in formal education in Flanders.
