ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) Forum & International Youth Forum 2011
11- 16 Augsut 2011
Tokyo, Japan

ESD Forum
The ESD Forum and international Youth Forum (Forum 2011) is a conference of international students and decision-makers convened by iuventum. The core concept is to include the aspect of action, and to talk about systemic topics – around Economy, Society and Environment.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) means education that enables people to foresee, face up to and solve the problems that threaten life on our planet, and that highlights the complexity and interdependence of three spheres, the environment, society and economy.

We should talk about issues for which we need to act ourselves. Now too many programs for students and decision-makers deal with issues for which we cannot or don’t do anything. This is our fundamental problem because, without action, discussion cannot be done with responsibility.

Participants will never discuss topics with pressure and responsibility if there is no need for action. We always have a “we-should-do-this” situation. As a core concept of the ESD Forum, we include the aspect of action. In the workshops and panels on Economy, Society and Environment, we will talk about the most challenging global issues, including Financial Crises and Global Warming (Climate Change). The motto of the ESD Forum consequently is: “Educate / Sustain / Develop our world”.
