Education for Sustainable Development: The Future Depends on Us! Sponsored by the Sava and Danica Andjelkovic Endowed Lecture Series

The 2019-2020 Sava and Danica Andjelkovic Endowed Lecture Series is pleased to present Kim Smith, Ph.D., Whitman College graduate (1990), Portland Community College Sociology Instructor, and co-founder of the Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network (GPSEN). Kim will highlight sustainability projects around the world, UNESCO’s ESD vision, and how we can all help create a sustainable future.  Participants will be invited to explore how their efforts are contributing to transforming the world and how new pathways are emerging for us all to make a difference and be a part of the change. From issues of poverty and health to climate change and ocean conservation, these aspirational goals offer a vision for a sustainable future and depend on us all to reorient education toward equity, well-being, peace, and justice. To do so, the United Nations has established a new decade, beginning in 2020, focused on the power of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). "ESD for 2030" calls for new skills, empowered youth, increased public awareness and community partnerships.
