UNITWIN Network Statement on Education for Sustainable Development

On the occasion of the first ESD-Net Global Meeting in Japan on 18-20 December 2023 within the new framework of the ESD for 2030 Roadmap, the UNITWIN Network on ESD & Societal Transformation issued a shared statement in further clarifying the vision of ESD.

The statement was published on the first day of the global conference and since then shared with policy-makers, researchers education professionals and sustainability experts. As the academic discourse on the understanding of ESD is an active conversation, positioning ESD beyond its contribution to quality education but also recognized as a key enabler for all SDGs with a role in transforming societies is hoped to raise awareness for all those tasked with SDG implementation.

The ESD-NET Global Meeting highlighted country progress on ESD through initiatives, trends, and innovations for the 2030 Agenda with the SDGs. Participants also agreed on action points in 2024-2025.
