The study is contextualised within the discourse of Education For Sustainable Development (ESD)but is mainly centred on pedagogy in the formal school context. The study also took note and examined whether teachers capture the southern African socio-cultural and structural dimensions of quality education during environmnetal learning. That was in view of the fact that in southern Africa, Lotz-Sisitka et al.(2006) postulate that sustainability challenges, such as, poverty, environmental degradation, increased health risk, and food insecurity, have been rightfully assessed to require an educational response for their alleviation. The integration of environmental education into the formal school curriculum through Education For Sustainable Development (ESD)is an issue which is receiving attention in different national contexts. The study focuses on how to integrate real-life local environmental issues into the Namibian senior secondary geography curriculum to support the development of action competence in learners.
