Education for Sustainable Development
Video Series "Living ESD"
Video series on Education for Sustainable Development by the German Commission for UNESCO and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
To launch UNESCO's new programme on Education for Sustainable Development ESD for 2030 and on the occasion of the UNESCO World Conference on ESD in May 2021, the video series "Living ESD" presents examples of successful ESD implementation in Germany. Based on the three focus areas of the new programme - transformative actions, structural changes and the technological future - ESD actors who have been recognised for their commitment by the German Commission for UNESCO and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research through the German ESD Awards and/or who are decisively shaping and contributing to the national ESD process are presented in each of the videos.
Places of Transformation
How does Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) contribute to making our society fit for the future? How, where and what do we learn in order to actively shape the sustainable transformation ourselves? In the first video of the series "Living ESD", we are hearing first-hand from people who are redesigning teaching and learning environments via the Whole Institution Approach and who promote competences that enable learners to advance the social transformation. Learn more about which competences are at the heart of ESD and how learners are empowered through ESD by watching three concrete examples from Germany.
How does Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) work in the digital space? How can technological progress be critically accompanied and evaluated in connection with sustainability? In the second video of the series "Living ESD", people are talking about how to use digitalisation for new formats of ESD and how innovative approaches can be used to reach new audiences. Learn more about successful examples of digital ESD and the role of ESD in the context of technological progress and sustainable development.
How is Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) implemented in Germany? What is the National Platform and who is represented? Who is involved in the implementation of the National Action Plan on ESD? In the third video of the series "Living ESD", people who shape the national ESD process in Germany and promote the structural anchoring of ESD at national, regional and local level are being interviewed. Learn more about the decision-making processes and participatory approaches for the successful implementation of Education for Sustainable Development in Germany.
