2014 World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development

The United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development ends in 2014.  To celebrate the accomplishments of the program in the past ten years, and to announce future plans, the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development will take place in Aichi-Nagoya, Japan, from November 10-12, 2014. 

"Education for Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning; for example, climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption. It also requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviour and take action for sustainable development. Education for Sustainable Development consequently promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way."
