Sustainable development Goals in education

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Europe involves integrating principles of sustainability into educational policies, curricula, and practices to equip learners with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for addressing global challenges and promoting a sustainable future.


There are many initiatives and programmes for the promotion of ESD in education and lifelong learning like the Bandera Verde (Green flag initiative) or the Eco-Schools Program targeting on:


  1. Environmental Education:

  2. Student Empowerment:

  3. Community Engagement:

  4. Implementation of Sustainable Practices:

  5. Global Citizenship:


 

In Greece, schools themselves, with support from educational authorities, may implement environmental education programs. These initiatives can include integrating sustainability themes into the curriculum, organizing field trips, and participating in national and international environmental projects. There are special Greek schools named ‘Centre for Environmental education and sustainability’ (CEES) well spread around the county offering environmental education programmes for all different age groups. The interested schools from all over the country could chose to follow a particular program in one of the CEES’s that better address their interest and follow the training programme either online or at the spot, organizing a trip to the CEES premises.


One of the CEES in Western Macedonia, Greece is the CEES of Kastoria town. The Center for Education for the Environment and Sustainability (K.E.P.E.A.)/Center for Environmental Education (K.P.E.) of Kastoria plans to implement educational programs, in person and online, with school groups of Primary and Secondary Education of the Region of Western Macedonia, for the period October - December 2023.
