The syllabus is designed to teach learners about sustainable development in a world where the security of resources and life-sustaining systems is endangered by human impact. It is wide-ranging in scope, topical in coverage and targeted on the important skills young people need for life.
Learners gain an understanding of how the natural system works and how people use natural resources; they then investigate the impact of human development on the environment and learn how the environment can be managed sustainably in the future, from a local as well as a global perspective.
From 2020 this syllabus will only be available in administrative zones 4 and 5. Check the administrative zone for your school.
