This part introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters. The part describes the implementation of global educational agendas which deal with sustainability education and sustainable development. It reflects on a socially inclusive philosophy of cooperation and care for the other, much in line with the universal goals of sustainable development. A tradition that promotes cultural confluence and syncretism, decolonized pedagogies of Indian schooling offer a new way to sustainability implementation in Southeast Asia. The part explores a localized theoretical framework, based on Rabindranath Tagore's humanist tradition of education. It describes an entirely new approach in Japanese sustainability education that addresses the unsustainable issue of aging and shrinking population. The part argues that active mindset education can be achieved by fostering core sustainability values and strengthening the science of sustainability as a focal arena of sustainability education in Japan.
