MEdIES was happy to facilitate two successful Trainings on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) that were organized by the EU-funded SWIM-Horizon 2020 Support Mechanism Programme, on 2 - 3 and 5 - 6 December 2018, Egypt, in cooperation with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA).

The Trainings aimed to raise awareness and contribute to building the capacity of formal and non formal educators and Ministries Officers on ESD programmes, focusing on showcasing how educational projects about solid waste management (recycling, marine litter) can be designed and applied. The 100  participants (in all meetings) were primary and secondary school teachers, university professors, staff of the Ministry of Education & Technical Education and of the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency as well as representatives of the Civil Society (NGOs, Associations, etc). The trainings combined presentations, group-work and experience sharing, while the participants were provided with educational resources so as to enhance their competences on how to design and deliver ESD.

On December 4th, an inter-ministerial consultation took place to discuss the ways to boost the proper implementation of the Mediterranean Strategy on ESD through its Action Plan and to align this with the existing national initiatives and programmes on ESD in the country. Actually, the two trainings and the  consultation contributed to the country’s efforts towards implementing ESD by producing  concrete recommendations on boosting the ESD components of the Egyptian Strategy on Sustainable Development (2030) to be finalised in February 2019.

Overall, the trainees obtained an understanding of the regional and global policy framework on ESD and were able to experience hands-on how a SWIM-H2020 SM priority theme (solid waste management) can be delivered within formal curricula and non-formal education schemes by developing their competences on how to design and implement an ESD programme and campaigns on topics related to sustainable management of solid waste and especially marine litter (minimisation, sustainable consumption, circular/green economy, etc.). They also had the opportunity to connect with the EuroMed-wide ‚ÄúMEdIES ‚ÄĚ network of educators.
