San Jose, Costa Rica 23-27 June 2014
by Nadia Gianoli

Principle 14 of the Earth Charter emphasizes the importance of “Integrating into…education and life-long learning the knowledge, values, and skills needed for a sustainable way of life”.

Under the framework of the UNESCO Chair on Education for Sustainable Development with the Earth Charter and the United Nations Decade on Education for Sustainable Development, The Earth Charter Initiative is offering a program which provides an opportunity to deepen understanding on role of education in fostering a culture of sustainability. The program introduces the concept of sustainable development and its implications for education, learning, and change. It explores practical methods for introducing the values of sustainability, in a holistic and integrative approach, to schools and classrooms.

For more information and to apply for the programme, please visit the programme’s website.
