Since the beginning of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD, 2005-2014), the DESD Secretariat at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris has received numerous requests for case studies and descriptions of good practices in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). These requests have increasingly included issues of providing an educational response to climate change. The increasing number of requests is only one indicator that climate change education is increasingly recognized in the broader education community as an essential part of ESD and life-long learning. ESD is a complex and evolving subject, and how it is applied and implemented is a challenge for all countries. The Decade aims to see ESD implemented in thousands of local situations on the ground, involving its integration into a multitude of different learning situations. These initiatives can be catalysts for action and contribute to the goals and objectives of the Decade. In such ways, organizations, local communities and individuals can be actors within the global movement for sustainable development. To support the growing interest in climate change issues and ESD, UNESCO is publishing this volume containing 17 examples of programmes addressing climate change in ESD settings and practices. These good practices and shared experiences, which were provided by a range of different stakeholders, are concrete examples of successful implementation of ESD in different fields and sectors, from the political to the school level, and including formal, nonformal and informal learning situations.
