UNESCO and TERI Organise “ESD Youth Leadership Training”

Date: 15-16 February, 2017

Location: India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi, India

UNESCO, in collaboration with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is organising the event ‘Young ESD Leaders Capacity Building Training Workshop’. The comprehensive programme is designed for young people aged 18-35 who are active leaders in sustainable development in their communities and regions.

The ´Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Leadership Training´ is a project of the Global Action Programme on ESD. As a follow-up to the UN Decade on ESD (2005-2014), UNESCO launched the Global Action Programme on ESD (GAP). The GAP has five Action Areas, one of which is dedicated to mobilizing and engaging youth who are recognized to be integral to the success of the GAP.


  1. Empower youth leaders to inspire and mobilize others to take action towards building more sustainable, just and resilient communities
  2. Build a youth-led ESD network for exchange and collaboration

The two-day workshop will engage participants with the theory and practice of ESD to build their capacity as ESD leaders. To maximize the learning, participants will also complete an online post-session to give continuity to the group and the training goals after the training.
