On 1 July, UNU-IAS and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) co-organised a Global Environment Outreach Centre (GEOC) outreach event on the theme of “Synergising ESD for 2030 Stakeholders Dialogue — Learn for our Planet, Act for Sustainability”. This event was organised as part of a series of UNU-IAS events around the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) 2021. The event was attended by more than 100 participants.
At the event, experts reported the key points addressed at the UNESCO World Conference on ESD (held in May 2021) and discussed ways to increase actions to accelerate actions on ESD for 2030 through the global community with various stakeholders including youth, academia, policymakers, and citizens. The role of academia and the importance of Regional Centres of Expertise for Education on Sustainable Development (RCEs) were highlighted in contributing to the evidence-based policymaking and bridging the gap between local communities and academia.
