On behalf of the cantons, the Confederation and civil society, éducation21 supports the implementation and anchoring of ESD at the level of compulsory school and upper secondary school.
Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)
How we work
The most important goal of ESD is to enable learners to participate actively and self-determinedly in shaping the present and the future. ESD supports the development of personal, professional, methodological and social competences that allow learners to perceive their own place in the world and to deal critically and creatively with a complex, globalised world with different values, dynamic developments, contradictions and uncertainties.
... and why
The vision of éducation21 is that children and young people acquire competences in schools and lessons that enable them to participate actively and critically in sustainable development.
