The UNESCO Week for Peace and Sustainable Development: The Role of Education’ presents a unique platform for discussion on two key programmes of the Education Sector, namely Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED), and their practical contribution in achieving Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Education. The Week will focus on the issue of teachers and teacher training, and highlight best practices in the fields of ESD and GCED. Participation is by invitation only.

UNESCO and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO are jointly organizing this Week for Peace and Sustainable Development which will present the unique opportunity to bring together two important events organized back-to-back with sessions open to all participants:

  • Review Forum for the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD: implementation and innovation
  • Third UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship Education (GCED): the Role of Teachers

The Week will provide space to share and discuss trends and innovation in pedagogical approaches and practices in ESD and GCED, as well as exchange good practices in advancing GCED and ESD in our global context. The Week has been designed to maximize opportunities for interaction, networking and free debates and discussions among participants.
