United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. It is up to us to build a better future for everyone.
In this workshop we want to hear your opinion on how to change things. We will focus on World goal 4.7 and work on Nordic solutions to make these aspirations part of our daily lives.
EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP
By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture's contribution to sustainable development.
The workshop will actively involve all participants. Together we will share our vision for education in the future to policy makers and practitioners. Tell them how we can educate for sustainable development and global citizenship.
The themes preliminary defined are based on UN world goal 4,7:
- Global Citizenship
- Cultural Diversity
- Learning for the future
