    Abstract

    There are many challenges and opportunities for teacher educators in Pacific Island nations in embedding EfSD in teacher education programs. PINs are culturally diverse and yet face a common set of sustainability issues that threaten their future. This chapter points out that the discourse of UN-led SD needs to be deconstructed and theorized by teacher educators in accordance with Pacific Island ways of knowing and being. It also establishes the need for professional development for teacher educators in developing meaningful, relevant, and empowering spaces for sustainability education.
