Roundtable Discussion on the Futures of Sustainability and the Futures of Education

Live session on Education for Sustainable Development

Our planet and its inhabitants are under increasing pressure: Human-induced climate change, limited and recklessly exploited resources, rising temperatures and sea levels, pollution and shrinking biodiversity are just a few of the issues governments and populations face around the world. The current Covid-19-pandemic amplifies existing weaknesses and challenges in our societies.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is crucial to empower people to have the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to meet these crises and other sustainable development challenges. It is still possible to move away from the disastrous path of climate and other emergencies by transforming our societies through education.

In the framework of UNESCO's World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development, the Futures of Education team organizes a roundtable discussion on the Futures of Sustainability and the Futures of Education.

This roundtable will take place on Monday May 17 from 4.30pm to 5pm (CET - Paris time). It will include the following panelists:

  • Suresh Gautam, Kathmandu University (Nepal)

  • Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw, University of Western Ontario (Canada)

  • Iveta Silova, Arizona State University (USA)

  • Sobhi Tawil, Division of the Future of Learning and Innovation, UNESCO
