In order to do this, wefocus on specific concerns confronting a number of developing countries in the Pacificwhere unsustainable activities provide lessons for the implementation of ESD. ESDrequires commitment from governments, commercial operators including transnationalcorporations, and local communities to facilitate positive changes through developmentof sustainable practices. In addition, we examine links between ESD and EnvironmentalEducation (EE) and advocate that they have the potential to work together to bringabout the desired changes necessary to create a sustainable future.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Current Issues in Comparative Education, 7(2), p. 114-129||Publisher:||Teachers College, Columbia University||Place of Publication:||New York||ISSN:||1523-1615||Field of Research (FOR):||130310 Maori Education (excl Early Childhood and Primary Education)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.tc.columbia.edu/cice/Archives/7.2/72jenkins_jenkins.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 175
