Virtual Workshop on Climate Action and Education for Sustainable Development
The BEACON-Team warmly invites you to the transnational virtual Workshop on Climate Action and Education for Sustainable Development.
The focus of the workshop is an exchange of good practice examples in the context of education for sustainable development (ESD) in Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Romania.
Stakeholders from policy and public administration, science, educational institutions, and the EUKI Community have the opportunity to share experiences on climate action and education for sustainable development. In the workshop, participants will also identify proven climate protection examples or put them up for discussion. Technical discussions, examples of practical action, and input by experts will be followed by interactive discussions in small groups. In these country-specific groups, the implementation of good practice examples in the local context will be discussed and education policy options that promote climate action will be exchanged.
BEACON aims to strengthen bi- and multilateral cooperation and create common ambition to realise the Paris Agreement amongst national governments, municipalities and schools via joint learning, networking and tailored advisory services.
The Workshop consists of two sessions:
Session 1: Thursday 24th September 2020, 12:00-15:30 CEST (Open for all EUKI-Community)
Introduction Block 1: Understanding education for sustainable development (ESD) with a focus on climate action, exchange of good practice examples and discussion with experts

What are the possibilities to improve climate education and awareness in the context of ESD content, methods or infrastructure
Block 2: Small working groups:
How can examples of good practice be implemented in the local context?
Block 3: Discussion on the upcoming questions
