Challenging the Focus of ESD: A Southern Perspective of ESD Guidelines
de Andrade, Daniel Fonseca
Journal of Education for Sustainable Development, v5 n1 p141-146 Mar 2011
In parallel to the 2009 World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development held in Bonn, Germany, UNESCO organised a group of 25 young education for sustainable development (ESD)-engaged people from 25 countries to bring perceptions, demands, suggestions and contributions to the conference. Prior to the conference the group was divided into four clusters to carry out and structure discussions on specific matters. This article discusses two ESD assumptions--about poverty and partnerships--that arose in one cluster. Both issues are addressed critically and challenge ESD to broaden discussions.
