Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (Brundtland Report, 1987)


Sustainability is a key for long-term development. Hardware are, of course, important in supporting sustainable development in a school. But in Po Leung Kuk Laws Foundation College, focuses have been put also on educating the younger generations for sustainable development. This is because educating the owners of the campus – our students – is the key criterion for long-term success, particularly in building up a green, harmony, culturally-mixed and low-carbon campus.




Sustainability is “the concept that oriented to the future” (Williams & Haughton, 1994). It describes a state or condition to be continued more or less indefinitely (Bhaskar & Glyn, 1995). In other words, it is the balance of resources extraction and allocation over time, so present and future generations get a fair share. The Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Po Leung Kuk Laws Foundation College actualizes our belief “Education for Future. Education for Life”.
