Recognizing the crucial role of educators and trainers, in 2016, UNESCO launched the global Project “Sustainability Begins with Teachers”, supporting member-states with the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 and the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
In this context, the regional project “Sustainability Begins with Teachers in Central Asia” builds the capacities of selected universities and teacher education institutions (TEIs) to draft and implement change processes on Sustainable Development within their establishments

As continuum of this project, we are hosting the second Regional Workshop under the framework of “Sustainability Begins with Teachers in Central Asia”. The meeting will employ a combination of keynote speeches, plenary sessions, presentations, and group discussion as well as a visit of the Tashkent State University of Uzbek language and literature named after Alisher Navoi.

This event aims at establishing synergies between teacher development and education policy on ESD; evaluating project activities on mainstreaming education for sustainable development and global citizenship, including methods and principles into programmes of TEIs; and agreeing on the sustainability of the project at sub-regional and national level in Central Asia.

For this occasion, we will bring together international representatives of the Ministries of Education and Science, initial and new project participants from TEIs from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, national project coordinators, international experts from Georgia, Sweden and Lithuania, education specialists from UNESCO Headquarters, Bangkok, Almaty and Tashkent offices and other international agencies.
