Abstract [en]

There is a huge emergence for sustainable change, but there are not many clear approaches for teaches to teach into sustainability. With the proof that the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) can be used up to large extent to provide primary schools from Education to sustainable development (ESD), the aims of ESD can be achieved in great extent, while the IPC is used in over 98 countries. Therefore teacher do not have to be introduced to a new approach; they can continue using the IPC.

There is done a literature research about the similarities between the educational vision & mission and practical investigation into the teachers experiences, by the use of a questionnaire, about similarities in the teachers competences between ESD and the IPC. Concerning the research the educational vision of ESD and the IPC are very similar, but in the education mission is a difference in focus. Where ESD wants a behavioural change, is the IPC focusing on improving the learning. However, this different focus is not eliminating the similarities that are shown.

Practically seen are teachers who work with the IPC are experiencing a 66.6% match with the teacher competences of ESD. The differences that are found are based on the different educational focuses of ESD and the IPC, but in here the IPC can easily adjust.

All together I can state that the IPC can be used as an approach to provide Dutch primary school pupils with ESD from a reasonable up to a pretty large extent, under the condition that the IPC is adapting to the educational mission of the ESD, without letting go of their own educational mission.
