There is a need for a quick and radical change in education. At present, education is not able to adequately react to changes taking place all around us. Education should provide our students with knowledge, skills and competences as well as develop attitudes and values, which help them to act in the changing world of work and society, bringing them towards a sustainable future. There are numerous publications on development of education, but less on how the changes in education are led and implemented. Additionally, the impacts of the sustainability crisis are usually ignored in the discussion on the development of education: how education should react and ensure competences and attitudes in order to mitigate them.
