11 October 2017
The Chinese National Working Committee for UNESCO on Education for Sustainable Development (CNWCESD) will hold the Fifth Asia-Pacific Expert Meeting on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and First Asia-Pacific International Colloquium from 11 to 14 October 2017 in Beijing, People’s Republic of China.
National education policies and implementation measures should be locally relevant and culturally appropriate while integrating the international intent of ESD to create future generations that will live in a sustainable manner.
Supporting the optimal implementation of ESD in the context of Education 2030 requires closer cooperation and collaboration amongst countries.
Taking all of that into account, the event adopts the theme of ‘School development and learning innovation towards sustainable development’. It is tailored for practitioners of ESD, principals of experimental schools, outstanding ESD primary and secondary school teachers and other experts in the field.
Apply to participate

a) Engaged in ESD teaching practice for a minimum of 2 years or other relevant ESD experience;

To apply, send your statement of motivation and professional profile directly to Dr. SHI Gendong, shigendong(at)sina.com.
The deadline for registration is 30 September 2017.
