Education and learning are critical for societies that aim at resilience, justice, decent quality of life and low carbon development. The United Nations Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (DESD 2005-2014) is coming to an end, as are the targets laid out in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Education for All (EFA) goals in 2015. As the international community engages in processes of consolidating efforts to further progress towards the MDGs while preparing sustainable development goals (SDGs), it is important to ensure that education for sustainable development (ESD) maintains a place of priority in development strategies.
This seminar will enable participants to share their views on targeted communications and education in the post-DESD development agenda. Views shared at the seminar will be compiled and offered as input to the 2013 International Steering Committee meeting for the DESD post-2014 planning, the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Inter-Agency Committee on DESD chaired by UNICEF, the launch of UNICEF’s Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction Resource Manual in September 2013, and the Post-2015 dialogues on UNICEF co-leadership on Education for Sustainable Development with UNESCO.
