Guidebook sustainabALE

What is the Guidebook sustainabALE?

The Guidebook sustainabALE and the supplementary working materials support Adult Learning and Education (ALE) organisations in the implementation of a holistic sustainable organisational development process in line with the Whole Institution Approach (WIA). The models, tools and good practice examples presented here were developed as part of the “International ESD Alliances” project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The products are based on the experiences of ALE organisations from seven countries. The materials contribute to anchoring Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as a cross-cutting topic in an educational organisation. This enables the organisations to make a contribution to a socio-ecological transformation which goes beyond the implementation of ESD into the educational programme and promotes a holistic approach of sustainability criteria.

Who can use the Guidebook sustainabALE?

The Guidebook sustainabALE and the accompanying materials are designed for staff and managers at ALE institutions, as well as experts in ESD and WIA. In addition to an introduction to Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and the Whole Institution Approach (WIA), the Guidebook provides a schematic model description of four possible Priority Areas within a WIA and a process-oriented phase model.
