Abstract [en]

This is a Minor Field Study which was carried out in six schools in the Morogoro district in Tanzania. The aim of this study was to find out the values of Tanzanian teachers concerning education for environmentally sustainable development. 18 teachers have been interviewed and as a complimentary method we have observed lessons of different subjects to get a better understanding for the answers from the interviews. Our findings are that the teachers find it important to teach about both reasons and effects when it comes to environmental issues. Many teachers believed knowledge of how to live in order to avoid environmental destruction was at least as important to teach. Another conclusion is that the teachers find it important to teach about environmental issues because knowledge of the environment is necessary for development of a country. Finally we have concluded that the teachers´ values are supported by the syllabuses.
