Education for Sustainable Development after 2014: UNESCO online consultation
United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development
To collect ideas and help develop a follow-up to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD, 2005-2014), UNESCO, as the lead agency for the DESD, is organizing an online consultation to gather positions on the development of an ESD programme framework after 2014.
UNESCO invites Member States and other stakeholders to have their say on the future of ESD and respond to the online questionnaire by 30 March 2013.
In its 190th session, the Executive Board of UNESCO expressed “its preference for a programme framework as follow-up to the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development after 2014”. The Board requested the Director-General “to develop, in consultation with Member States, and in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, the proposal for a programme framework, led by UNESCO, which should cover at least the period of the forthcoming Medium-Term Strategy for 2014-2021.” Furthermore, the framework should “address education at all levels and in all forms, be based on a comprehensive sustainable development agenda, while also encouraging strategic focus and national commitment.”
This online consultation seeks to:
• identify priority areas for ESD activities post-2014;
• identify ESD initiatives that could be scaled-up in a post-2014 framework.
