“The heart of the matter” publication available now in Spanish

In November 2014, ECI launched the publication “The heart of the matter: Infusing sustainability values in education: Experiences of ESD with The Earth Charter” for the occasion of the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development, which celebrated the end of the Decade of ESD (DESD).

This publication is a contribution to the Decade and it celebrates the launch of the Global Action Programme for Education for Sustainable Development, which continues the work of the DESD.

ECI is pleased to announce that this publication is now available in Spanish, under the name “Enfocándonos en lo esencial: Infundir valores de sostenibilidad en la Educación.”

Over the course of the Decade, Earth Charter International has contributed to the efforts of the UNDESD by organizing workshops, courses, teacher trainings, and by producing several publications about the Earth Charter in ESD initiatives, such as:  “Good Practices using the Earth Charter”, “Exploring synergies between faith values and ESD” and a special edition of the “Journal on ESD, September 2010; 4(2) issue”.

The collection of 19 stories showcased in this publication celebrates the ongoing global effort to bring ethics and values into education at all levels including non formal, primary and secondary, and higher education.

The stories of this publication show the amazing diversity and creativity of educators around the world who are finding ways to bring sustainability values into teaching and learning, and by doing so are helping to accelerate sustainable development.
