Multistakeholder Learning towards Green Society

Date: Friday, 15 June 2012
Time: 14:30–16:00
Venue: Japan Pavilion
Partners: Ministry of the Environment, Japan
 

The production and consumption of goods and services drives economies and greatly influences society at large. To build a socially just economy and a more sustainable society, we must inevitably focus on making our consumption and production systems more sustainable as well -- sustainable not only in terms of market growth and resilience, but also in terms of productive non-market relations, ecosystem health, quality of life and the well-being of all involved.

This event, co-organized by the Education for Sustainable Development Programme at UNU-IAS and the Japanese Ministry of the Environment, will explore how learning and education can lead to more sustainable systems of consumption and production and how to promote uptake of such efforts at national and international levels. The event will also help identify new, multistakeholder partnerships among local, regional and global networks that can facilitate transformative learning and action research for sustainability.
