On this page you will find the materials shared by Camphill Community Trust Botswana and its partners on the Marketplace of the 2021 UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development.
Camphill Community Trust was invited to offer this presentation as a 2019 Laureate of the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development.
Education for Sustainable Development asks: How does education need to be transformed, so that we can individually and collectively build the capacities needed to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals articulated by the United Nations. Partnerships, networks and collaboration between grassroots organizations are a key to accomplishing this. The diverse group of partners invited by Camphill Community Trust Botswana to join this presentation provide a real-life model for what this kind of collaboration and networking can look like.
