dc.description.abstractEducation is an empowering method of causing change. It plays a significant role in personal human development by developing the learning capacity of individuals. However, personal development tends to be perceived as a separate discipline on its own. This paper points out that education is actually for personal development. It argues that knowledge associated with personal development such as wisdom related knowledge should be embedded in courses more actively to draw desired behavioural patterns for self-sustainability and survival in this rapidly changing world. Self-sustainability is addressed from a behavioural perspective where desirable behavioural patterns that allow individuals to be retained or sustained for longer periods are considered sustainable qualities. Research is overwhelmingly in support of new ideals for workers to achieve long term sustainability in order to face the challenges in the 21st century. Emerging trends are explored and the development towards self-sustainability is discussed.
