Digital storytelling and participatory video (PV) are closely linked since they share common objectives, development tools, and methodologies. They are not just informative but purposefully aim to empower, educate, and activate people toward building a more sustainable and just society. This chapter describes both digital storytelling as a tool and as a teaching and learning methodology applied in an Erasmus+ project in Southeast Asia. It has been revealed that the interaction between digital technology and education for sustainability creates new opportunities to address sustainability, as well as new challenges. The teachers trained produced digital storytelling/PV applications that can be categorized as “authentic” learning activities addressing issues in the “real world.” It was widely assumed that teachers involved in this process learned to view teaching and learning from alternative ways, feeling ownership and control of their own learning and experiencing a sense of contribution to society and the environment.
