ESD expert review of processes and learning

Tags: education | ESD | learning | sustainable | development | processes


The United Nations Decade in Education for Sustainable Development (DESD, 2005-2014) is a global movement which seeks to transform education policy, investment and practice. If it is successful, the DESD could change not only education but also the quality of life for many people across the globe. Acknowledging the potential impact of the DESD, UNESCO established a Monitoring and Evaluation Expert Group (MEEG) in 2007. This expert review was commissioned as part of Phase II of the Global Monitoring and Evaluation effort for the DESD.

A key objective of this expert review is to gather information to inform the choice of tools and the specifi c questions which need to be asked as part of the 2011 DESD monitoring and evaluation report. The review seeks clarification on:

i) Which commonly accepted learning processes are aligned with ESD
and should be promoted through ESD activities?

ii) What are ESD and related learning opportunities contributing to
sustainable development?
