The Future We Want - Post Rio +20 - roadmap to action

Topics Covered:

Following a Post Rio+20 consultation (November 2012) instigated and facilitated by EAUC in response to the education commitments in the Future We Want document, responses have been collected from the education sector, governmental agencies and NGOs. The interim summary of the consultation highlights synergies in views, but also differences in priorities and ambitions for ESD. This session aims to instigate further dialogue and exploration of how different stakeholders could work together to strengthen learning for sustainability in the UK. The outcomes of prior consultation and this session will inform a manifesto aimed at the government and other stakeholders and will aim to contribute the development of the Sustainable Development Goals.
