It is recognized worldwide that higher education institutions are key drivers to sustainable development. Contemporary global challenges related to issues of climate change, globalization, growing interreligious conflict, increasing social inequities and environmental degradation confront education in the present era. This paper provides an insight on how higher education institutions can address these global challenges by adopting value education towards human development for a sustainable future. The effectiveness of value education for learners in their personal transformation and how such an education based on shared global values can foster a peaceful, just and sustainable world is examined. This research study aimed at analyzing the relevance of student participation and engagement in value education, Student And Teacher Value Assimilation (SATVA) approach, towards enabling resiliency, managing vulnerability and supporting adaptation among learners in higher education institutions. The sample for the study constituted students who have undergone the value education programme. The results indicated that holistic development of learners makes them responsible and ethical global citizens, equipped to contribute to societal transformation for sustainable human development. This paper will be relevant to anyone interested in adopting a systemic approach to value education for sustainable human development.
