2019 Global Conference on Teacher Education for Education for Sustainable Development
This conference will bring together ESD and GCED experts with policy makers, teacher educators and other practitioners in education to explore, discuss, and develop locally relevant strategies to systemically implement Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) as called for in Sustainable Development Goal 4.7, the Global Education 2030 Agenda and other UN policies that our nations have agreed to carry out between 2020 and 2030. The conference will be the first global meeting to recognize the goals and the designated framework entitled ‘Education for Sustainable Development: Towards achieving the SDGs (ESD for 2030) being launched in June 2020 in Berlin, Germany.
The conference will focus on the role of embedding ESD and GCED within formal education systems, seeking existing successful practices and identifying their potential for policy reform and other education legislations. Special interest groups will focus on aspects such as:
- Embedding ESD and GCED in elementary and secondary education,
- Online teaching approaches engaging and accessing those in remote or underserved regions,
- ESD as a potential to enhance education and training systems for Indigenous youth,
- ESD and GCED in early childhood care and education.
