Abstract

This paper is an attempt to critically analyse the status of India with respect to the strides taken as a nation to integrate education for sustainable development in the curricula whether in schools or in higher education institutions. Achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 4 i.e Quality Education cannot be complete unless we understand the urgent need for sustainability education at all levels. India has exhorted in NEP 2020 to move towards sustainable education keeping in mind the important goalposts of ensuring equity, equality and inclusion of all especially the marginalised groups .In this paper a close examination of some important researches and  a few recent project initiatives that have been taken to achieve the same have been presented looking at their sufficiency in terms of the targeted outcomes by 2030.
