This research is a solution to the problems teachers face in dealing with the development of science, technology, and communication, which brings rapid changes to the world of education. Education has a great responsibility to face the challenges and aspirations of the 21st century, specifically globalization, where Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is developing very rapidly. Teachers are required to innovate in the learning process at school. The purpose of this study is to analyze students’ and teachers’ understanding of Education for Sustainable Development to meet their needs by using a balanced and integrated approach to the economy, society, and environment. The analysis was carried out descriptively on teachers and students consisting of 80 students in junior high school class IX in the form of a questionnaire. These results can be seen from 80 students, 100% of students are aware of the importance of learning resources in the learning process, 88.8% of students have difficulty in determining an action from the problems encountered in science learning, and as many as 63.7% of students have difficulty understanding the language used in printed books. Based on student questionnaires, 63.7% of students have never heard of the term Education for Sustainable Development (ESD which is an important part of knowledge to maintain the sustainability of life on earth. Based on the results of interview questionnaires with junior high school teachers, most of the teachers also needed help understanding the term ESD. This shows the need for further introduction of ESD to students and teachers, one of which is by including ESD elements in biotechnology teaching materials used in schools.
