Traditional Knowledge and Biodiversity
The Education for Sustainable Development Program at UNU-IAS has worked with Regional Centres of Expertise (RCEs) worldwide to create a new publication showcasing a series of case studies in this regard.
The case studies examined in this publication are characterised by local expertise being brought together for transformative learning. Be it the bio-cultural approaches or the contexts of today’s policymaking, the case studies demonstrate the need for three key approaches to ensure education for sustainable development is successful:
- the need for ‘learning by doing’;
- the value of learning from practitioners;
- the importance of collective interventions.
