  • 2020•06•17

    Promotion of Sustainability in Postgraduate Education and Research Network (ProSPER.Net) members are invited to submit joint project proposals for 2020 – 2021 with the aim of designing and conducting researches by taking a multi-disciplinary approach to integrate sustainable development into post-graduate education and curricula and various learning initiatives.

    Research proposals should include an education component, exemplifying how Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) can be used to educate students and/or community members on the topic and the findings of the research. The following topics related to ESD are welcomed: i) Water or Governance from the Perspective of Sustainability, ii) Biodiversity and Eco-system Services, iii) Disaster Risk Management, iv) Climate Change, v) Traditional/Indigenous/Local Knowledge, vi) Community Participation and Governance.

    Due consideration will also be given to any project proposal that incorporates the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on ESD. Due to the pandemic, online and distance learning modalities for education modules – such as online courses, online training videos, and online manuals – are highly encouraged outputs.

    More information on the selection and application processes can be found here. The deadline for applications is 31 July 2020.

    UNU-IAS Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Project is the secretariat for the alliance.
