                  German-Japanese Cooperation: DESD-Project

Educators of Germany and Japanese have been working together, following UNESCO’s framework of the
Decade of Education for Sustainable Development 2005 -2014, initiated by the Japanese Government in Johannesburg, (WSSD, 2002).
The “Germany-Year in Japan 2005/2006” has been an additional opportunity to start a viable cooperation among German and Japanese teachers and students to find strategies of how to implement the principle of Sustainability in education.
In order to cope with global changes (syndromes) and the disadvantages of globalization everyone has to accept and practice responsibility.Germany and Japan face various economic, environmental and social problems which are alike, therefore cooperating may be worthwhile. The most promising strategy in doing so will be based on Education for a Sustainable Future
