The Earth Charter Center is partner of the 10YFP

10YFP logoThe Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development is now a Partner of the Sustainable Lifestyles and Education (SLE) Programme of the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP) that UNEP coordinates.

The 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), adopted at Rio+20 by the world’s Heads of State, is a global framework for action to enhance international cooperation and advance the implementation of SCP in all countries and regions.

The SLE Programme was launched at the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development in Nagoya, Japan on 11 November 2014.   The work areas of this Programme are:

  1. Developing and replicating sustainable lifestyles, including low-carbon lifestyles
  2. Educating for sustainable lifestyles
  3. Transforming current and shaping future generation’s lifestyles

Although the EC Center for ESD will be collaborating in all these areas, the focus of its activities as a partner will be on Work Area 2.
