UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development

The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the resolution in support of education for sustainable development 2005-2014 on December 20, 2002. The aim of the decade is to encourage the progress of education as a basic element for a sustainable society and strengthen international cooperation.

In order to implement the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development in Latvia, there has been signed a protocol of cooperation between the Ministry of Education and Science, The Ministry of Environment and the Latvian National Commission for UNESCO (October 16, 2006). The Latvian National Commission is represented by Mrs Baiba Moļņika, head of the education section. The participation of Latvia at the World Conference “Education for Sustainable Development” in Bonn (Germany) has been planned during regular meetings of a working group in 2008. In the framework of these meetings the working group has also drafted a directions and actions plan for implementing the decade in Latvia from 2010-2014.
