The United Nations 2030 Agenda organized around the Sustainable Development Goals has a specific Goal 4 dedicated to education. Target 7 of this goal is very specific, it states that, all learners should “acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.”

It is clear that education plays a central role for the effective implementation of all SDGs. To accomplish this a transformative pedagogy is needed; an innovative pedagogy that informs and empowers learners to accept their role as planetary citizens who can create new ways of being and new institutions that benefit all.

The Earth Charter Education Center offers an Online Programme that features a values-oriented, holistic approach that promotes a shift in perceptual worldviews and ethical action. This six-month programme has the purpose to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and abilities of educators to implement Education for Sustainable Development and Education for Global Citizenship through the lenses of the Earth Charter.

This UNESCO Chair on ESD with the Earth Charter Programme will provide a space of dialogue using transformative learning pedagogical processes that respond to the new guidance and educational needs of today.
