Guyana, like all other countries, faces challenges in realising sustainability in socio-economic development. A key part of this challenge is the preparation of citizens empowered with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to realise sustainable development. This Policy, therefore, seeks to introduce the principles of sustainability in all aspects of the formal, non-formal and informal education system in Guyana. Guyana will work to ensure the development of an enabling environment and capacity for all sectors and stakeholders to effectively contribute towards the achievement of sustainable development. The implementation of this Policy supports the Government of Guyana’s Vision 2020. Vision 2020 envisions sustainable socio-economic development, good governance and human safety within a green society. Quality education is key for the achievement of Vision 2020.
