National consultation on Learning to make the world a better and more equal place: Education for Sustainable Development

The Department of Education and Skills and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, recently held a consultation to get the views of children and young people about what they learn that motivates them to make the world a better place. Education for Sustainable Development is about learning to make the world a better place. It’s about opening children and young people’s eyes and minds to the realities of the world, and awakening them to bring about a world of greater justice, equality and human rights – at home, in the community and in the wider world. It’s also about protecting the environment and ensuring that everyone is treated fairly in Ireland and all over the world.

The Department of Education and Skills will report on the findings of this consultation process at the National Forum on Education for Sustainable Development, which is due to take place on 1st December 2016. You can find out more and view more pics from the day here:
