In preparation of the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development on 17-19 May 2021, in Berlin, Germany, in which ESD for 2030 framework will be officially launched, UNESCO is organizing a series of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) online workshops in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany, and with the German Commission for UNESCO as advisory partner. The aim is to explore how ESD contributes to building a world that is more sustainable and equitable, and how ESD provides the basis for how to recover and rebuild beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.



The Covid-19 crisis is only one of many crises that we are facing and will be facing in the coming years. Particularly in context of the climate emergency and extreme weather conditions, the global community will have to deal with new and unexpected situations and learn to live with ambiguity and uncertainty. More than half of young people also expressed concerns about mental health linked to the current sanitary crisis as well as the concerns on employment and education.


Therefore, the third pre-conference online workshop explores what would help young people to feel better prepared for the current and future uncertain situations.


How do young people view the current crisis? What are the enabling conditions for young people to become active change agents for sustainability?

How can ESD equip young people with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be resilient under challenging situations?

The session will be organized by and for young people who are aware of the global sustainability challenges and are interested in actively preparing for a better future.
