Several studies are reviewed here to help in understanding the key concerns in teacher preparation for education for sustainable development (ESD). The subject of study was always pre-service teacher education. Teacher educators in pre-service teacher programs play a pivotal part in helping student teachers improve their professional knowledge and practice in ESD. Published work on teacher education for ESD tends to be about whether the teachers have sufficient subject matter knowledge, whether the context for ESD was taught as an independent subject. The extent to which various environmental concepts are included in teacher preparation programs is very low. Teachers commonly focus on changing human behavior to mitigate the impact of climate change when they think about how to teach it. The workshop was designed to engage the curriculum subject matter for climate change. The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education requirements is important considerations for the incorporation of environmental education (EE) into teacher preparation programs.
