"Are you an educator or do you work in the education field? Is sustainability important to you or your community, school, organization, or company? Join other educators for a one week intensive program which will provide you with ideas, resources, and skills for implementing Education for Sustainable Development [ESD] in your work environment."

The programme introduces the concept of sustainable development and its implications for education, learning, and change.
