02 May 2010 | News story
UNESCO has commissioned a review of authoritative literature on processes and learning for ESD. If you have access to key documents which can inform this literature review, please send them to Daniella Tilbury, CEC Specialty Group Leader on Education for Sustainable Development.
Decade of Education for Sustainable Development - Processes and Learning for ESD
As the lead agency for the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD), UNESCO has commissioned a review of authoritative literature on processes and learning for ESD. This literature review will inform Phase II of the global monitoring and evaluation process for the DESD and will feature in the 2011 DESD global report which will focus on processes and learning for ESD.
The literature review will seek to:
1) clarify what processes should be promoted to facilitate learning through ESD;
2) identify learning opportunities in ESD that in turn promote and facilitate sustainable development.
The value of this literature review depends on access to scholarly work and empirical studies from across the globe. We also consider it important to ensure that culturally varied as well as appropriate responses to ESD are captured in the document.
We are asking for your assistance as ESD experts, key informants and/or practitioners. If you have access to key documents which can inform this literature review, we would be grateful if you could send them to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15th May 2010.
The final draft of the literature review is expected to be available online at the end of June. We thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.
Professor Daniella Tilbury
Chair, Monitoring and Evaluation Expert Group (MEEG) for the UN DESD
