Dear Colleagues,

Since the UN Summit on Sustainable Development Goals kickstarting ambitious action in September 2015, 193 member states supported and adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the 17 SDGs have become the common core issues for countries worldwide to achieve The Future We Want. However, many countries are enduring scorching climate change, encouraging different people understand and practice the 17 SDGs. Sustainable education/SDG education/ESD focuses on promoting sustainable development with the core values of diversity, inclusion and no one being left behind. This topic intends to discuss the formation of core values of sustainable education/SDG education in adult education. We invite you to share your research on how vocational education, professionalism and further education focus on sustainable education, and how to change our adult learning. In addition, this topic also concerns with the impact of emerging technologies (such as artificial intelligence) in the sustainable education field. It aims to understand how current education responds to new technologies such as ChatGPT, and how educators should cultivate the talents needed for the future world. The topic also includes future scenarios for sustainable education, meta-learning (learn to learn), STEAM learning and talent cultivation, creative thinking and creativity, training (TVET) for sustainable development, professional competency cultivation, and professionalism and vocational education.
