UNESCO document states that education has a crucial role to play in climate change, building capacities and attitudes for climate change mitigation as well as stimulating and reinforcing understanding and attentiveness of climate change. A particular attention should be paid to adult education. People are living longer in an increasingly global world, jobs are evolving and the impact of climate change is growing. To cope with these changes, there is need for adult education that promotes change by improving social, economic and environmental opportunities and also by improving learners' sustainable attitudes towards the environment. Adult educators are key drivers for achieving this change in the world. Educators have the ability to guide the positive energy of learners to make change possible. It is adult educators who can stimulate adult curiosity and provide learners with the tools and resources to explore, understand, engage and understand the importance of sustainability. Despite it, adult educators identify lack of systemic approach for SDGs implementation working in non-formal adult education field, systemic implementation guidance and daily working manuals for adult educators are missing. For that reason, adult educators from six countries have started Erasmus+ Strategic partnership project "Sustainable Attitude for Environment in Adult Education". Project is aimed to prepare manual for adult educators. For that reason, in the framework of this project a survey of adult educators as the experts in this field was carried out to analyse adult educators needs and competencies on sustainability topics and to identify measures taken daily to reduce the impact of CO2. The article analyses the survey results in Latvia.
