Summary/Abstract: Quality of education represents a previous condition for social sustainable development. The concept of sustainable development has changed in time, without existing an universal model of education. For sure, such a model cannot be conceived, because there are different approaches of education for each society, which vary from economic, cultural and technological points of view. Education for sustainable development brings in the same time a new motivation for the educational act, offering the opportunity to those involved, to creatively participate to identify solutions and evaluate the alternatives to create a sustainable future. Taking this into account, we can define it as transposing the abstract in reality, by putting in the centre of attention the human potential and knowledge. Knowledge means power, which denotes that, as long as a person assimilates more information, his potential and abilities will significantly grow. Education is going to assure support for young adults, in general, in this continuously changing world, global and full of challenges and uncertainties, helping them realize the complex relationships and action mode that they have to adopt. The basic concept of the society based on knowledge for a sustainable development is data, information and knowledge. Knowledge always represented a motric force of change, a powerful determinant of progress in all domains. Starting from these reasons, the present paper proposes itself to investigate the relationship between education and social sustainable development, being a pylon in the conversion of sustainable development.
