Think and act in a way that is fit for the future: This is the goal of the nationwide initiative "Education for Sustainable Development" - also in Waldeck-Frankenberg. The district actively supports schools in the district in the implementation of the sustainability strategy and provides them with concrete measures for this.

In addition to the ESD diploma, the Waldeck-Frankenberg district also offers primary schools the opportunity to be certified as an ESD school: The aim is to recognise sustainable activities that are incorporated into lessons, everyday school life and organisation in the long term. In order to become certified, the schools - in addition to participating in the ESD Diploma - work on two long-term projects. Growing a fruit and vegetable garden to produce sustainable food is just one example. After an implementation period of one to two years, they receive the ESD school award.
