There is no doubt that all around the Mediterranean, and beyond, there are many people actively, passionately and imaginatively working in education to facilitate change towards sustainability, may that be in schools, youth groups, local communities, NGOs etc. The documents presented here, are proposed as examples of good practice in ESD in order to inspire and support the work of others. Some come from MEdIES Secretariat, and others from MEdIES members. All MEdIES members are welcome to enrich this catalogue with their implemented practical intervention plans, games and ideas in the field of ESD. And of course all practitioners are welcome to reflect upon, evaluate and share ideas on the methods proposed .
