UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development – Pre-conference Workshops

Join UNESCO for a global series of online workshops on how to transform society through learning with ESD, launching in September 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tragic impact on human life around the world: killing hundreds of thousands of people, causing global economic decline and school closures in over 180 countries. It has challenged the structures of our societies and our ways of life. This disruption also presents a historic chance to redesign our societies and reroute from the current path.

In the lead-up to the UNESCO World Conference on ESD in May 2021, UNESCO invite you to a series of ESD online workshops in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany, and with the German Commission for UNESCO as advisory partner. The discussions and results from the series of online workshops will be used to further develop the conference program and help shape the agenda in Berlin next year. The first of seven workshops, ‘The Big Conversation: Education for Sustainable Development and the World Beyond Covid-19‘ will be held on 9 September, 2020 (12:30pm Paris time).
