Although the importance of environmentally friendly attitude has been pointed out, actual methodologies or contents of environmental education may not have been systematically organized. The AGS Taskforce for Environmental Education (AGS-TEE) has implemented Youth Encounter on Sustainability (Y.E.S.), which is an experimental program to develop methodologies for environmental education in a multicultural and interdisciplinary group of students. The AGS-TEE has also intended to structurize methodologies for environmental education by the use of outcomes from the Y.E.S. program. The present project is designated as the regional branch of the AGS-TEE’s international project. The Y.E.S. program can be recognized as a program to 1) focus on the understanding of the complex concept of sustainability, 2) emphasize the importance of social aspects like the minority issue, and 3) let the participants experience decision making process for sustainability. In the future, there is a need to develop a sustainability education program that should focus more on Asia, as Asia will be a key area for global sustainability.
