By: House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee
This report starts by saying that "ignorance of an individual's role in contributing damage to the environment, such as negative bio-diversity impacts, unsustainable use of natural resources and climate change, is inexcusable and frankly dangerous". However the consensus is that the Government is failing to get its Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) message across to the general public. The conclusion of this report is that the Department for Education and Skills has failed to find sufficient funds for ESD, has lost the impetus that led to the creation of the Sustainable Development Action Plan and continues to treat ESD as a low priority, bureaucratic add-on. The Committee is deeply concerned about this failure and looks to the Prime Minister, if necessary, to ensure that the DfES moves ahead and gives ESD the financial and policy priority it needs.
