Education for Sustainable Development

Education is essential in supporting the implementation of the sustainable development agenda and human development.

13 April 2018, Geneva, Switzerland - Because at UN CC:Learn we work to empower people to carry out long-term impact solutions to climate change, through capacity building, we contributed to the recently launched policy brief developed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Global Action Programme: “Education for Sustainable Development: Learning to Act, Learning to Achieve”.

The brief examines how Education for Sustainable Development policies may be advanced to support the implementation and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, and ultimately help empower a learning society for sustainability.
