Education for Sustainability: CIES 2019
Our 2019 theme connected the CIES with a reconsideration of human progress – by scholars, governments, corporations, international agencies, and civil society at the grassroots level. This reconsideration was also reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by UN member states. Our theme reminded us that, while education is both a public and private good, its impact is global. Indeed, education is integral to the four pillars the UN has seen as supporting sustainability: inclusive social development, inclusive economic development, peace and security, and environmental sustainability. We in the CIES, both individually and collectively, have much to contribute to these pillars.
