          Abstract

          This paper is concerned with the development of the strategy for Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) in Wales. It is based on semi-structured interviews with key participants in the policy development process and explores the different drivers, views, approaches and attitudes which led to ESDGC being adopted in its present form. It explores how participants from a variety of organisations with very different aims came together to develop ESDGC and how this fits with various models of constructivist learning, including communities of practice and activity theory. It concludes that there were a range of drivers involved in the process, for instance the Welsh Assembly Government's constitutional commitment to sustainability, the drive and enthusiasm of key individuals, the sharing and subsequent modification of different perspectives, the influence of research into the views of teachers, and a generally conducive zeitgeist.
