Networking for ESD
The ESD Programme has been closely collaborating with the Ubuntu Alliance – fourteen of the world’s foremost educational and scientific/technological institutions who have agreed to:

  • strengthen collaboration between science and technology researchers and educators;
  • better integrate science and technology into educational programmes for sustainable development; and
  • strengthen cooperation between formal and non-formal education.

The programme is also working closely with UNESCO , the designated lead agency for the DESD and is exploring possible joint actions with relevant organisations.

Finally, the ESD Programme is, among other activities, promoting Regional Centres of Expertise (RCE) which are networks of existing formal, non-formal and informal  education organisations mobilised to deliver ESD to a regional community.
