Abstract:This article reports on results of a study that examined the experiences of practitioners in Namibian with implementing the programme Education for Sustainable Development. Lecturers in Namibian institutions of higher education view education for sustainable development as cutting through disciplines for which reason they should be the responsibility of all lecturers. Nevertheless, a collaborative teaching effort is not undertaken. The authors recommend that members of institutions' management boards inspire and motivate sustainability and environmental awareness, and actively promote the transformation of society through the adoption of a policy and action plan on education for sustainable development.
