Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University of Vlora,firstname.lastname@example.orgA Confucius Chinese philosopher &reformer (551 BC - 479 BC), had said “Ihear and I forget. I see and I remember.I do and I understand.”Logically you do what you think is right,and to decide what is right you needknowledge that the main part of them youhave take from school, and another partcome from family.Change is a difficult process, because it need time to realize. Education is fundamental for changingin local and global scale.Best way to bring about change in the community or society is education.When talking about education, mean education from primary school curricula until theypostgraduate.
• Own theory of sustainable development, is not yet consolidated, but still thisstage where it is, remains the foundation for all development plans, and futuregoals.• Therefore, the vision of the future is not seen without sustainable developmenttheory that is injected in every direction.• People usually do not to prefer to change behaviors of life style. They want theirown model to construct and to live their life.• Actually almost no one is prepared to be Sustainable.Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail QemaliUniversity of Vlora,email@example.comThats because being“Sustainable” requiressacrifices in ouraccommodated life.
While the theory of sustainable development, is theplanets perspective, on the other hand we have theexpression that the “youth are the future”.Education is a very important step in enhancing ageneration of people to understand the importance ofsustainabilityEducation is the first step in understanding what aboutsustainability is, and every person that learns aboutsustainability may learn which are their own impact ontheir environment, whether positive or negative they are.Education is not alone. After education comeimplementations. And they both are really closed.Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University of Vlora,firstname.lastname@example.org
Education and natural resourcesEducation makes clear the differences between standards and quality of life.Sustainable curricula education has started to spread information for quality of life, and especially in the issue of consumerism.Our society is doubly a consumerism society.In fact the quality of life is really closed with environmental.The clean and fresh air, clean water, bio productions, that are fundamentals elements that we live in this planet, has no connectionwith the quantity of our day’s consumerism.Human kind can’t survive without oxygen, water, land etc. All those elements are part of our environmental.Another strong connection that comes from environmental education is conserving natural resources because we are not only fortoday here. We must think for tomorrow’s generations.Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University ofVlora, email@example.com
Up with education - Up with legislationEngjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University of Vlora,firstname.lastname@example.orgDemocracy is based on lawsEach law comes as a necessity to regulate the functions of a society.A society tends not to enforce the laws, if it is not aware of the importance of the law.To bring change in the life of the community, deprived of some behaviors, and imposingnew, and to carry out that peacefully, so that expect positive results, must firstcommunity awareness, which comes as a product of education.
Concluzions!• The link between education and sustainable development is strong.• The theory of the future for sustainable development, may not receive or find the applicationdevelopment and widespread support, if people are not educated and do not receive adequateinformation.• Implementation of strategies for sustainable development is a result of the development ofeducational curricula.• To change means that you have understand your responsibility, to be responsible you must haveknowledge, and to pretended that you have knowledge you must be educated.• Development and sustainable development is connected with education. We live at the same planet,and planet is like a big home which means that we live at the same home. So we divide problems.Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University of Vlora,email@example.comMay be , education is enough but I amsure that :EDUCATION IS FIRST STEP OFSUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Engjellushe Zenelaj, Ismail Qemali University ofVlora, firstname.lastname@example.orgThe theory of sustainable development should be integrated, moreeducational curricula at all educational levels.It should be treated not simply as a theoretical and conceptual analysisbut as practical training.Integrate the principles of sustainability cannot be a special subject, but itmust be integrated in all the sciences, such as biology, geography,sociology, etc.Interaction labor methodologies are assets that guarantee success.The identification of educational programs for sustainable educationcurricula in all states, in this way all will join this, regardless, the level ofGDP, ethnic, social affiliation, national borders, geographic or physicalbarriers etc.Recommendations
