Abstract:  This ESD review-responsive and future-oriented program on “Reorienting TVET Policy towards Education for Sustainable Development” is was jointly organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre in Bonn, Germany, InWEnt – Capacity Building International, Germany and Colombo Plan Staff College for Technician Education in Manila, Philippines.

Building on the results of the March 2009 Bonn ESD World Conference, this international TVET expert meeting aimed to be a catalyst to integrate sustainable development-focused objectives, themes, strategies and operating procedure into TVET policies, programmes and practices. The discussions focused on the following four-dimensional ESD concerns:

1. Creative methods to expand awareness, meaning and scope of ESD through multi-stakeholder dialogue;
2. Strategies for inclusion of non-formal and informal learning in the context of sustainable development;
3. Means for incorporating ESD in the TVET (including training of leaders in business and industry to form the values toward corporate social responsibility, etc);
4. Ways for creating greater synergy and networking among representatives of SD-related institutions of governance and learning.
