Call for nominations: UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development 2021

UNESCO has launched the call for nominations for the 2021 UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

Generously funded by the Government of Japan, the Prize will award three prizes of US $50,000 to exceptional projects and programmes in the field of Education for Sustainable Development.

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) develops learners’ knowledge, attitudes, values and actions to be able to meet urgent present global challenges like climate change and create a better future for all. By shining a light on great examples of ESD, UNESCO and Japan hope to inspire organizations, individuals and governments to encourage sustainability in learners.

Get inspired by past winners of the UNESCO/Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development.

The UNESCO/Japan Prize has been awarded since 2015 to outstanding projects in ESD. Here are some of the previous winners.
