UNESCO Roadmap for Implementing the Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development
- Climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts sit within the broader work of sustainable development. So too does climate empowerment work sit within efforts around learning to live sustainably. In ACE, one of the six elements is about education, specifically; it is this element that connects to UNESCO's Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) program. Thus, ESD is one part of a broader ACE program and provides clarity for what that aspect of ACE may look like in practice.
- This original ESD roadmap, created in 2014, is intended for a diverse audience, from government organizations to teachers and learners. It explains the Global Action Programme and how to implement its ideas and monitor progress.
