ECI March webinars on education for sustainable development

Building on last year’s free webinar series to introduce the Earth Charter, ECI rolled out seven free webinars in March on education for sustainable development. Each webinar had a different expert guest speaker or speakers. Two of the webinars were in Spanish and five were in English.

This series of webinars was an attempt to share knowledge and gather people from different palces.

The guest speakers related their own experiences of working with the Earth Charter in education for sustainable development, from primary education through to graduate level programs.

All these webinars have been recorded and can be seen through the following links.
