    Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr Michele Biasutti - Padova University - ITALY 

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) could be considered an approach that provides fertile ground for implementing a dynamic transformative process in educational institutions. ESD offers pedagogical challenges and could provide a framework for the innovation of didactic practices in educational institutions. ESD is based on interdisciplinary and student centered approaches and encourages critical thinking and future-oriented skills. The introduction of ESD principles in school curricula and the promotion of ESD concepts and practices could be used for inducing the professional development of school and academic staff. Professional development based on ESD improves curriculum planning skills, fosters critical self-reflection of teaching practices which are crucial activities for developing meta-cognitive strategies and mastering teaching practices. The presentation focuses on the relationship between education for sustainable development and teacher professional development aiming to examine the impact of ESD principles and practices on the professional development of school and academic staff. Professional development in ESD could be considered from different disciplines such as education, psychology, social sciences, ecology, and all the disciplines connected to sustainable development issues highlighting the challenges that this process involve. 

Key words: ESD principles and challenges for teacher education, Teacher professional development, Teacher change and ESD, Trainee teacher education and ESD, Innovation of school curricula and ESD, Innovation of higher education institution and ESD, Educational practices in ESD.

Taking for backdrop our contemporary “endangered environment”, we essay an analysis of the “Sustainable Development Goals for 2030”, in order to bring forth the challenges pertaining education, while part of a multi-causality complex system that involve people, the planet, prosperity, peace and collaboration. The relevance of soft competences is explained, namely to discuss the kind of education that is expected to be required as well as the future of work, which is already here, as we are currently at the heart of a paradigm shift that points to: a wide range of employment conditions; with an expanding tendency to new forms of work outside the structured employment relationships; meaning the very likelihood of the end of unified workplaces, times and activities; accompanied by the emergence of multifaceted and discontinuous career paths; a phenomena which is related with the end of static and predictable labour markets with well-defined boundaries; at the same time that interconnections between work and private life will raise. We want to highlight some trends so to put in perspective the problems we are facing, which in some way could represent a receding horizon if we do not shake away the euphemistic readings and engage in effective courses of action, taken seriously.
