UNCCD: Publication “Building a more sustainable world through education”


To integrate the principles, values and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning and to enhance the profile of education and learning in sustainable development, the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) was launched in 2005. The vision of the DESD is to create a world in which everyone has the opportunity to benefi t from education and to learn the values, behaviour and lifestyles required for a sustainable future that effects positive societal transformations. The DESD is everyone’s business. It calls for individuals and groups at all levels to be involved in working towards a more sustainable future.
