This work analyses relationships between technology education (TE) and technical, vocational education and training (TVET) at the secondary school level in terms of empowering students for addressing issues of sustainable development in a responsible manner. It considers the contribution of TE and TVET in terms of education for sustainable development and lifelong learning. In this context ESD is conceptualised through moral, aesthetic and practical perspectives. Throughout the book such issues as advancing girls through the use of particular projects, creating equal educational opportunities via use of ICT and enhancing employability and social responsibility are examined. A number of practical strategies are proposed for meeting young peoples’ needs and to help in developing their social responsibility. A case study of Russia analysed the ‘Russian’ approach to sustainable development and education for sustainable development. The case study illustrates some processes relevant to TE and TVET and the conceptualisations above.
