Green education is crucial for fostering sustainable practices and environmental consciousness, particularly among younger generations. However, there are disparities in green education practices among the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries due to varying socioeconomic levels, national priorities, and capacities. Addressing these disparities requires a holistic approach encompassing infrastructure, technology, trained educators, governance, funding, leadership, collaboration, and international partnerships.

This study analyzed green education across maturing, and emerging ASEAN countries. Maturing countries are making strides but face challenges like teacher shortages and limited resources, mitigated by innovative partnerships. Emerging countries encounter the most obstacles, including competing priorities and lack of resources.
