UNESCO Forum for Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education
The theme of UNESCO Forum for Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education with be ‘Learning and Teaching for Peaceful and Sustainable Societies: From early childhood to primary and secondary education’.
The UNESCO Forum will focus on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED), two key programmes to the achievement of Target 4.7 of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on Education.
On the occasion, UNESCO will launch a study on how the three learning dimensions of ESD and GCED (cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioural) are reflected in curricula at pre-primary, primary education (PE) and secondary education (SE) levels in ten countries from across the world.
The UNESCO Forum will provide a platform to exchange experience and innovative approaches on how to address gaps and fully harness the potential of these three domains of learning, at pre-primary, PE and SE levels, in order to support sustainable development and global citizenship.
