Welcome! We were expecting you!
If you find yourself on this web portal, it means that you understood the importance of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in developing our society, but also the essential role that each of us have, as promoters and initiators of change.
The portal is here to help you understand, learn and begin to practice the ESD principles. And all of this in order to bring an improvement, an added value to the quality of life of present and future generations.
We reach out to everybody interested in this field, but especially to teachers, trainers and experts. Why? Because you are the one that passes on the information generation after generation, to smaller or larger groups, thus creating a sustainable chain in time. We need beside us open minded people that will forward our message and that will be our partners in the process of change.
Thus appeared this web portal, with focus on Education for the Black Sea (but not only), part of the bigger concept of Education for Sustainable Development. We gathered here useful information for people that first hear of this subject, for those who already have some experience but also for the experts. The sections of the portal are accessible, you can easily find what you are looking for but also you can share your experience that is so valuable in the continuous learning process of each of us.
