Education for Sustainable Development: past, present and future

Education for Sustainable Development is an alternative form of education that is envisioned to help society transition towards sustainability through achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The webinar will start with an invited talk by Professor Daniella Tilbury on the origins and progress of ESD from the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992 and Agenda 21 to the ESD for 2030 roadmap launched by UNESCO in early 2021. The second part of the webinar will include a panel discussion of invited speakers who will share their experience implementing ESD initiatives and their insights on its transformations, progress, challenges, and a new vision for 2030 and beyond. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the discussion by asking their questions and sharing their views. Confirmed panel members include Professor Ros Wade, Dr Jaya Gajparia, Dr Françoise Laveuve and Dr Ayar Ata.
