Great news! The "future plan" for ESD: "Education for Sustainable Development beyond 2019" was approved and adopted at the 206th session of UNESCO's Executive Board. The document was developed after a long participatory process enganging states representatives and stakeholders relevant with ESD from all over the workd in various workshops and meetings and after running an online open consultation process last autumn. The paper provides the goals, the proposed approach, an implementation framework as well as some administrative implication for the application and monitoring of ESD in the countries fully in line with the SDGs and particulalry the SDG 4.7 and Agenda 2030. It covers the period of 2020-2030 and is available at the link:

The city of Hamburg has started a programme converting the schools into climate action schools.
Every school is recommended to start an individual climate protection plan and try to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The schools set their targets and devise the respective measures and indicators to see if they have reached their goals. An annual internal examination grants further improvements.

Download the 4page long brochure (PDF) with step by step simple guidelines for schools wishing to start Climate Actions.

WATER FOR ALL

Reflecting the Sustainable Development Goal 6 : water for all by 2030, 2019 World Water Day's message is "Water for all - Leaving no one behind"

Today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and even face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.

In the occassion of the WWD, the World Water Development Report 2019 is also entitled ‘Leaving No One Behind’ seeking to inform policy and decision-makers, inside and outside the water community, how improvements in water resources management and access to water supply and sanitation services are essential to overcoming poverty and addressing various other social and economic inequities.

Due to the development of its work in multiple intelligences, this school has organised its curriculum by focusing on students, allowing them greater autonomy in the learning process and greater participation in matters of school organisation thanks to democratic and inclusive management processes.

Authentic problem solving, based in real life contexts, hands-on approaches, the library culture, robotics, enigmatic challenges, meditation... we loved everything about this school.
Inspirational, a must see. What is your favorite practice?

UN Environment’s Sixth Global Environmental Outlook (GEO-6) is the most comprehensive assessment of the state of the world's environment. The report also offers a rigorous analysis of our prospects for a healthy future.

What’s the prognosis? Our planet is suffering. The climate is warming, species are going extinct, natural resources are being wasted, and many of our ecosystems are under enormous stress.

But there’s good news too. Hunger is on the decline, innovation is taking off, and people everywhere are seeking out ways to live more sustainably.

Access the GEO-6 in full text and summary version (in many languages) here: https://www.unenvironment.org/resources/global-environment-outlook-6

[What’s clear to me now is that there won’t be a single moment when we need to have “the talk” about climate change. Instead, climate change needs to be something that’s part of our everyday conversations and actions. It needs to be fun and engaging, solutions-focused, and fact-based. And, above all, it needs to start now. Here are five techniques that can help.]

Recommended article for teachers and parents.

The updated EAEA manifesto 2019 outlines the challenges where adult education can play a key role, it’s transformative possibilities and the power and joy of learning.

The manifesto is targeted at European, national and regional policy makers to demonstrate the benefits of adult learning. In the upcoming European elections, the manifesto will help communicate EAEA’s vision of a Learning Europe with all necessary skills, knowledge and competences.

EAEA proposes a Europe-wide effort to go one step up, to develop a knowledge society that can deal with the challenges of our time. This demands sustainable investments now – on the European, national, regional and local levels in adult education.

The manifesto presents nine current European challenges, which adult learning helps to solve:

  • Active citizenship and democracy
  • Health and well-being
  • Life skills for individuals
  • Social cohesion, equity and equality
  • Employment and work
  • Digitalisation
  • Migration and demographic change
  • Sustainability
  • Adult education and European & international policies

Access the full version (with selected research evidence and best practices) and 1 page version of the Manifersto here: https://eaea.org/our-work/influencing-policy/manifesto-for-adult-learning-in-the-21st-century/?mc_cid=dd9374ece1&mc_eid=0fa958f41b&fbclid=IwAR2rOZAat0MiRCPgZK1PCPGcx2FICL_tuXXN7c_UvXK-rMCN82rJv4aGtYg
