New website on good practices: Linking Culture, Education and Sustainability
05 July 2011 | News story
A new website showcases projects worldwide that take innovative approaches to integrating culture components in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
From Ingrid Mulà and Daniella Tilbury, CEC Specialty Group Leader for ESD
Launched in September 2010, the project aims to collect, analyse and share learning experiences that articulate cultural, socio-economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. It was established as a contribution to the UN Decade in Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014).
The project website offers an opportunity for policy-makers and practitioners to learn about the Culture/ESD interface as an emerging field of practise and research. It showcases a wide range of projects from across the globe, that are rich in details and innovative in terms of how they have integrated cultural diversity components in ESD.
The UNESCO website includes:
- Project introduction and context
- Selection of examples of Good Practice
- Project findings and key lessons learnt (to be uploaded shortly)
- A range of relevant resources including images, videos and reports
- An opportunity to join the network of practitioners
