Abstract

The objectives of this chapter are twofold. On the one hand, it aims to offer insight into how the Geography curricula of various countries position sustainable development within their geographical knowledge. On the other hand, its ambition is to reflect on the educational contribution of Geography as a school subject to the cross-curricular objective of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Romania, Mexico, and Germany serve as case studies to showcase ways of linking geographical knowledge to (E)SD. Each case study explores the particularities of the curricular architecture, looks into SD, ESD, and stakeholder agency. The closing section offers a broader context for already existing recommendations for curriculum designers and suggests additional steps on tying SD to geographical knowledge.
