The Conference Report for the 2019 Earth Charter International Education Conference: Leading the Way to Sustainability 2030 is now available. The Conference was hosted by the Earth Charter Center for Education for Sustainable Development at University for Peace, with the support of World of Walas and Soka Gakkai International, from 29 to 31 January. More than 100 participants from 18 countries attended this conference and had the opportunity to share educational experiences and discuss pedagogical approaches focused on sustainable development and global citizenship.
The report summarizes the 66 presentations given by presenters from over 10 different countries. Due to this rich cultural diversity, the conference was held in English and Spanish and divided into nine plenary sessions and four categories of parallel sessions. The presenters came from different educational fields such as school education, higher education, and non-formal education. In addition, we counted on the participation of presenters from the fields of local government, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and UNESCO.
We invite you to read the report to learn more about the work being done to contribute to the advancements in education for sustainable development by members of the Earth Charter Network as well as those who were new to this community.
