Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to develop a comprehensive theory for sustainable education. Design/methodology/approach: The authors have used a multiple case studies approach. Findings: The authors have identified ten drivers that influence sustainable education. Most of these drivers have been drawn on the basis of extensive literature review; however, some of the drivers are novel to the current study, such as attitude, behavior, and promotion. Research limitations/implications: The framework needs to be validated using empirical research with a large-sample size. Practical implications: The study offers guidelines to universities and institutions that want to impart sustainable education to their students for better employability. Social implications: The study makes an immense contribution to society by recognizing the need for sustainable education and identifying how to achieve better results. Originality/value: The current paper contributes to the existing literature by identifying three novel constructs and how the constructs can shape sustainable education to address current market needs.
