Summary

The project will address the four priority areas of action identified by the UNESCO Expert Group on Competences in Education for Sustainable Development (UNESCO 2012), namely professional development in education, governing and managing of institutions, curriculum development and monitoring and assessment. We will work along four lines of action towards specific objectives aimed at strengthening knowledge, skills, attitudes, practices and social norms in the areas of the climate change and sustainable development:
1. Identifying the challenges and opportunities for strengthening the educational community’s competences by co-designing with the schools and universities and the wider educational community a European Competence Framework (ECF) for climate change and sustainable development.
2. Testing the ECF at a number of demonstration sites, by implementing jointly with the educational community a variety of contextually adapted interventions designed to enhance environmental, individual, and collective competences in the area of climate change and sustainable development.
3. Engaging the broader educational community in the evaluation of the ECF, addressing the individual, organisational and institutional factors enabling or constraining the desired changes in social practices.
4. Empowering the broader educational community to trigger and sustain transformational change towards a more sustainable future through participation in the design, implementation, and evaluation of the ECF.
