Abstract english

Education is the foundation for achieving sustainable development. The United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development declared from January 2005 to December 2014 demands a concerted effort to expand environmental education around the world. The Young Masters Program is an international education course, which utilises the internet to connect students, teachers, and tutors in different parts of the world. The focus of the Young Masters Program is preventive environmental strategies in the context of sustainable development. More than 2,300 students and teachers in 109 countries have participated in the Young Masters Program since 1998.
