                    Which are the Hopes and Challenges with ESD Beyond 2014?

A question that arises after the failed conference of Rio+20!
The ESD Decade will end 2014, without having accomplished all goals (Lost Decade?).
Therefore efforts have been started to cope with these open issues by stating what has
 been achieved and where have we failed.

 

 A conference in Bonn,
EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT –INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ’HORIZON 2015'
,
organized by the German UNESCO Commission in  Feb. 2012, asked participants (around 50)
to identify obstacles and resources that could hinder or further the agreed vision for ESD.
These activities resulted in a list of 'Help' and 'Hinder'.

                                             
These conference lists are usually non-committal because they do not demand to be on active.
More effective are overviews where issues are prioritized, thus the stakeholders know where to start
and where they feel supported by the knowledge and insights of the community
.
