Two days again Education for Sustainable Development. However the naming; Agenda, Decade, Learning,.... Future Learning with new Competences, Capacities, Skills,... we in Germany try to follow-up on the UNESCO Decade for Sustainable Development.
THIS IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT, so much learning was around, around Stockholm, AGENDA 21, Transfer, Club of Rome, ... but we seem to be reinventing wheels and avoid including some old learnings practives for the sake of "new thinking and learning".
But anyway, BRAVO for the exercise under the umbrella of the German UNESCO Commission.
Check Details - unfortunately little material in English at this point.

Same as the ESD projects for 10 years there are now awards by the Agenda orogramme: and

Lots to be said about the opening keynotes by a federal and regional minister, but let me start with out session about keynoted by Chuck Hopkins[q]=search&options[author1]=Charles%20Hopkins&options[sortspec]=date&options[submit]=Submit&options[numresults]=10&options[sortmethod]=0 and later doing a "fishbowl" to include the participants and move beyond lecturing.
Maybe I am tooo hypercritical - as it was actually a good and interesting session with the core international guests of the more local, German, exercise under the umbrella of the German UNESCO.
I am critical already on the top above as there were the efforts for the GRUNDSCHUL CONGRESS **** 20*** exactly at this place - doing not lectures and workgroups, but Open Spaces in "small" group sessions and more integration, summing-up,....
But maybe OPEN SPACES are more expensive as "open" does not mean "cheap" but facilitated with a lot of preparation...maybe check this Open-Space Worldmap moderators website: [link]
