The UNESCO conference on ESD (Nagoya, Nov.2014)
The UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) will be co-organized in 2014 by UNESCO and the Government of Japan on the occasion of the end of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. It has the following four objectives:
3-4 June 2010 : establishing the network and launching actions :
The June conference in Bordeaux made it possible to analyse the potential of each of the universities and to identify the expectations of the university communities and the other members of society in education, training, information and research on sustainable development in order to define the main actions to develop as part of a common strategy applied locally, nationally and regionally.
Action Plan 2010-2013
2010-2013 : setting up of an action plan for the network and monitoring progress :
For four years the actions chosen by the heads of the chair and the multi-partner steering committee will be developed. These actions will be monitored and assessed using specific indicators, especially those of UNESCO and UNECE. These four years correspond with the four year term of 2010-2013 of the International Francophone Organisation and the end of the United Nations decade of education for sustainable development.
End of 2013 : International Conference on sustainable development
The conference in Bordeaux at the end of 2013 will bring together the universities of the UNITWIN network, as well as their various partners in order to take stock of the last four years in education, training, and research for sustainable development and to prepare a final document for the final world conference of the United Nations Decade of education for sustainable development that will take place in Tokyo in 2014.
