In preparation of the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development on 17-19 May 2021, in Berlin, Germany, in which ESD for 2030 framework will be officially launched, UNESCO is organizing a series of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) online workshops in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany, and with the German Commission for UNESCO as advisory partner. TO JOIN   >>

The aim is to explore how ESD contributes to building a world that is more sustainable and equitable, and how ESD provides the basis for how to recover and rebuild beyond the Covid-19 pandemic. CONCEPT NOTE HERE >>

In spring 2020, school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic impacted more than 90% of the global student population. UNESCO is supporting countries in their efforts to mitigate the immediate impact of school closures, particularly for more vulnerable and disadvantaged communities, and to facilitate the continuity of education for all through the Global Education Coalition

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can contribute during and after the pandemic by helping to build resilience and to transform our lives towards a more sustainable world. While the search for new forms of remote learning continues in the prolonged pandemic, the second online workshop explores how ESD learning can take place under social distancing regulations, in high- and low-resource settings.  

ESD practitioners across the world will share how they continued ESD despite the challenging situation during the pandemic. Based on these experiences, the session will explore how resilient ESD structures can be built to ensure that ESD learning continues during crises.  

  • What were the learnings from the pandemic how ESD can be best supported digitally and remotely? 
  • How can resilient ESD structures be built that ensure that ESD learning can continue in digital or remote format?
