Event Place: 

Date/Time: 21 September 2023, 18:00 JST (online)

As part of the ESD-Net 2030 series of learning webinars on ESD pedagogy, this 3rd webinar will feature four organisations (the Office of Climate Education (OCE); the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS); the Media Development Center (MDC) at Birzeit University, Palestine; and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Greece) delivering simultaneous workshops highlighting and promoting innovative practices in ESD.

Topics to be covered range from effective climate change education, using 'design thinking' to help students create carbon-neutral schools, community-based ESD for sustainable consumption, and strengthening media and information literacy of teachers.

A workshop facilitated by Jonghwi Park and Sawaros Thanapornsangsuth (UNU-IAS) will focus on 'Designing community-based actions for sustainable consumption and production', guiding participants through a design process for community-based actions and education focused on sustainable consumption and production (SCP). Informed by the recent publication from UNU IAS 'Driving Sustainable Consumption and Production at the Local Level: Education for Sustainable Development Projects from the Global RCE Network', this workshop will introduce three critical factors of SCP: 1) resource efficiency; 2) waste management and minimisation; and 3) consumer behaviour based on 12 promising RCE cases from around the world. Participants will meet and hear from two of the community project implementers, exchange ideas and learn how to design sustainable consumption and production practices in their community.
