Scholarly work in Geography (Education) repeatedly stressed the discipline's conceptual and thematic affinity to the idea of sustainable development (cf. McKeown, 2007; Tilbury, 1997). This was grounded in the conceptualization of Geography as bridge between Social Science and Nature Science. Despite intense discussions, ESD-related work in Geography has put little emphasis on the difference between knowledge and societal goals (cf. Marsden, 1997). In consequence, democratic education is at stake. This session aims to seek ways of discussing sustainable development without moralistic or even totalitarian attitude.
