Abstract

This article outlines the work being undertaken by the School of Early Years at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) to engage with Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESGDC). The article provides a context for the ESDGC agenda in Wales and then explores the practical initiatives undertaken by the School of Early Years to develop student awareness and participation in ESDGC discourse. The article makes links to relevant ESDGC and early years’ literature and presents evidence to support the approach taken to engage students with ESDGC, and to support these students to be confident to explore sustainable development concepts with the young children they work with in the future. Amlinella’r erthygl hon y gwaith a wneir gan Ysgol Blynyddoedd Cynnar PCYDDS i ymgysylltu ag Addysg ar gyfer Datblygu Cynaliadwy a Dinasyddiaeth Fyd-eang (ADCDF). Mae’r erthygl yn darparu cyd-destun ar gyfer yr agenda ADCDF yng Nghymru ac wedyn yn archwilio’r mentrau ymarferol yr ymgymerir â nhw gan yr Ysgol Blynyddoedd Cynnar i ddatblygu ymwybyddiaeth myfyrwyr a’u cyfranogiad mewn trafodaethau ar ADCDF. Mae’r erthygl yn cysylltu â llenyddiaeth ADCDF a blynyddoedd cynnar berthnasol ac yn cyflwyno tystiolaeth i gefnogi’r dull a ddefnyddir i ymgysylltu myfyrwyr ag ADCDF, ac sy’n cefnogi’r myfyrwyr hyn i fod yn hyderus i archwilio cysyniadau datblygu cynaliadwy gyda’r plant ifanc y byddant yn gweithio ganddynt yn y dyfodol. Keywords: ESDGC, early years, sustainability, ESD
