Taking ESD forward

In this video, educators from around the world reflect on their engagement with education for sustainable development and how it has inspired them.

As we’ve discussed in the course before, making changes to your educational practice can be both an exciting and an intimidating process. So, we thought it might be helpful at this point in the course to provide you with some inspiration in the form of other educators reflecting on their own ESD journeys and what this has meant for them professionally and personally. Watch the video to see whether their ideas and experiences might help you consider your own journey forward. 

Earlier this week, we also asked you to look at the ESD Framework to identify areas where you feel more confident and areas where you might want more support. We suggest that you keep the matrix handy for future reference and return to it after some time to reflect on how you have moved forward and what continues to be challenging. 

To bring the course to a close, in the next steps you will complete a short piece of writing to reflect on your learning through the course and to make plans for your future engagements with ESD.
