Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future

In 2002, among the UNESCO contributions to the process associated with the World Summit on Sustainable Development, was a multimedia teacher education programme on 'Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future'. One of the 25 modules in the programme is that on 'Sustainable Tourism', which explores the characteristics and objectives of sustainable tourism through a series of case studies.

In a more recent project that started in 2007 -- a 'local-context' Portuguese adaptation of the training and awareness-raising programme is being developed -- as a joint project between Cape Verde and Sao Tome & Principe, and the UNESCO Offices in Dakar and Libreville respectively.
