The role of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is attracting attention as a means of achieving the SDGs to solve global issues. Along with UNESCO’s International Conference on ESD (2021), all schools in Japan, including UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network, are emphasising education to nurture “creators for sustainable futures”. In response to this, Sophia University has started an international joint research project on ESD (Sophia-ESD Project). In this symposium, the significance and role of ESD as a kick-off of the project will be discussed.
