“Sustain-Earth.Com” invites you to visit, share and contribute in: http://sustain-earth.com. It is a professional, multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral website and platform for supporting the implementation of Applied Sustainability in all sectors and on all levels with special focus on water and energy. An introduction to the BLOG is given at “ABOUT”.
Among other central aspects of the BLOG is coupling of education, science and technology to society, population and market needs. This involves essential functions and instruments for promoting wide-range of B2B activities and Career-Development-Plans trategies for helping young professionals and graduates to meet the emerging needs for conservation of natural resources and for joining the ongoing transformation to sustainable societies.
You are most welcome with any response, interactions and contributions, e.g. as Guest Blogger using “CONTRIBUTE”. “Sustain-earth.com” extends previous activities by the UNESCO to further promote implementation of sustainability.
Engagement in sustainability issues may also require access to other education channels. United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization “UNESCO” has on-line free of charge material on what sustainability is. Sustainable Development, as explained by “UNESCO” allows every human-being to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future.
Shaping the future is for everyone’s interest and can be done by anyone, everyone in his or her circle of activity. Within education, Sustainable Development means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning; for example, climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, poverty reduction, and sustainable consumption. It also requires promoting participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviour and take action for sustainable development. This promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way and requires far-reaching changes in the way education is often practised today. UNESCO has already completed the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Developments (2005-2014).
