ADEA coordinates workshop on ECCE at UNESCO World Conference on ESD

ADEA was invited by UNESCO to participate in the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) which took place in Nagoya, Japan, November 10-12, 2014.

ADEA helped prepare a workshop on “Re-orienting education for a better future” and was assigned the co-coordination of the workshop on mainstreaming ESD in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE).  The workshop was expected to play a key role in mobilizing stakeholders for the implementation of the Global Action Program (GAP) on ESD which seeks to generate and scale-up ESD action. The co-coordinator of the workshop along with ADEA was the World Association for Early Childhood Education (OMEP).
