The Entrepreneurship Campus is an activity within the framework of the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future

Education for Sustainable Development

How changes in the ways we learn are going to change the way how we think? Education for Sustainable Development aims at achieving this by making key issues related to sustainable development such as poverty alleviation, climate change, sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity loss part of education.

While millions of people of different ages around the world still don’t have access to education, ESD focusses on enabling people in and out of schools to develop much-needed skills. Those skills will help them improve the quality of their lives and to take action for ensuring better life quality for the coming generations.
Financial resources, legal frameworks, and technological efficiency are crucial to sustainability, yet nothing helps more than a mindset/behavior change.

How can you contribute to promoting ESD?

Every day we see a considerable number of ideas and projects submitted to our competitions that champion SDG 4: Quality Education. They not only focus on increasing access to education and skills acquisition, and on promoting lifelong learning, but also on teacher education.

The solutions that they propose are relevant to global problems. The latter not only are human-generated issues but at the same time, they’re too complex and intractable to unravel. To solve them, it is required that the environmental, social, economic, and many other approaches are involved in the education curricula.

First, children and youth need to understand how those complex issues are connected. No one can provide a solution to a specific problem by focusing only on that issue because it can be related to many other problems, and it is a problem in other parts of the world. There is a need to think globally. The fact that a problem is affecting a country on the other side of the planet doesn’t mean that it isn’t our problem. A sustainable world is possible through local action and cooperation. Trained teachers can help them do it.

ESD helps to shape informed and trained groups of people of different ages that can bring social, and political changes for sustainable development.

No matter what goal your idea or project champions, you can contribute to education for sustainable development.
Remember that education is a human right that has the power to transform the world.
ESD has the potential to change attitudes and behaviors through training, know-how, skills acquisition, creativity, and inventiveness.

If you are interested in entrepreneurship, you can take the free online training provided by the Entrepreneurship Campus, and share what you learn with other people that don’t have access internet access or don’t speak English. The online courses help to create a mindset that can be implemented everywhere where change and progress are needed.

If you have an idea or run a project that champions the SDG or sustainable development in the travel and tourism sectors, there is still time to join our competitions.

  1. Quality Education is very pertinent because it breaks the barriers of the process of poverty and gender inequality, likewise, promote an inclusive society. By providing access to quality education, people can be more educated in their communities and also it brings about social change and enterprise. Our project promotes SDGs 4 and 8 in that, we are on a mission to train at least 2 out of school children annually which means one year of basic schooling for a child currently out of school and at least 300 youths yearly thereby, promoting Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). By so doing, our project is helping out to create an educative community and society.

    • So agree, education effects a lot on poverty, and as soon as we take an action, the future population will have a better live too.

  2. I couldn’t agree more. Education is a human right with immense power to transform. On its foundation rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development. At MotherCare help, we extend maternal health / nutrition education to the community; i am happy to be using ESD to achieve SDG 3

  3. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

  4. This also proves that the pen is mightier than the sword!!

  19. Quality education is the right of all. Countries like Finland has schools which provide quality education and is leading in the world in education system. We all must learn from their curriculum. I had submitted an idea which mainly focuses on SDGs like quality education and good health-well being. Today’s youth have the power to bring a revolution in education sector which is the need of the hour. One should constantly be engaged in reforms and new techniques besides paper-pen tests, memory building, academic lessons (which are often boring and in outdated way) etc. New things should be added.
    There should emphasis on ‘how and what to think’.
    Children and teachers should enjoy their job and not feel it like routine burden. Learning should be made fun without frown on students’ heads. They should be prepared for life and not just for interviews and exams in their career.
    And I am here on the journey to make an effort to change million lives with simple living and high thinking.

  20. The UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of providing universal primary education to all and eliminating gender inequities, has propelled many nations and multi-governmental organizations to boost educational spending. But the work is not easy, and many countries are falling short of achieving these goals, particularly the 2015 target date that was set when the goals were adopted in 2000.

    Today, around the globe, an estimated 61 million primary-aged children are out of school, almost half of them in conflict-affected poor countries. Too often, even those students who do go to school finish without basic literacy and numeracy skills: it is estimated that 250 million children can’t read, write or count well.

  21. As Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

    Education is the key to eliminating gender inequality, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace. And in a knowledge economy, education is the new currency by which nations maintain economic competitiveness and global prosperity.

    Education is an investment, and one of the most critical investments we can make.

  22. Expanding educational access for girls is not just an urgent economic and social need. In many cases, it is literally a matter of life and death. A mother who can read can better protect her children from chronic illnesses, from AIDS, and from dying young. A child born to a mother who can read is 50 percent more likely to survive past age five. And in Africa’s poorest states, UNESCO projects that the lives of 1.8 million children could have been saved if their mothers had at least a secondary education.

  23. In announcing his Global Education First initiative, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reminded us that, “We cannot afford to waste the talents of a generation.” He related this to his own experience growing up in the Republic of Korea as it recovered from the war. “People today often ask about my country’s transformation from poverty to prosperity. Without hesitation, I answer that education was the key”

  24. Education is the foundation of peace and prosperity. I can’t imagine a better world without a global commitment to providing better education for women and youth and I urge all of us to reinvigorate our efforts to accelerate progress in improving access, quality and student achievement worldwide

  30. Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to creating sustainable development. In addition to improving quality of life, access to inclusive education can help equip locals with the tools required to develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems.

  31. Over 265 million children are currently out of school and 22% of them are of primary school age. Additionally, even the children who are attending schools are lacking basic skills in reading and math. In the past decade, major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrollment rates in schools particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.

    The reasons for lack of quality education are due to lack of adequately trained teachers, poor conditions of schools and equity issues related to opportunities provided to rural children. For quality education to be provided to the children of impoverished families, investment is needed in educational scholarships, teacher training workshops, school building and improvement of water and electricity access to schools.

  32. From to the United Nations statistics:

    Enrolment in primary education in developing countries has reach percent cent but 57 million primary age children remain out of school.

    More than half of children that have not enrolled in school live in sub-Saharan Africa.

    An estimated percentage of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas.
    617 million youth worldwide lack basic mathematics and literacy skills.

    Quality Education is the means of acquiring knowledge through various learning, teaching and studying process. The quality of education is the right impact in which the knowledge one has acquired is put to use accurately. It is also of a great importance for a student to be taught effectively and efficiently for them to retain what they have studied so far.
    My Project,Save Nigeria Technical Colleges is seeking to improve the quality Technical and Vocational Education in Nigeria by making the necessary practical tools and equipment available to the students.This is the only way we can equip the present generation with the right skills for the future of work.

  34. Would anyone ever come upon the idea to teach sports in such a way that the only thing analyzed
    would be the participants’ desire to win? And then to do this using mathematical formulas? With the
    result that there would no longer be any competition included in the study of physical education, but
    only mathematics? You laugh? What is taught about competition between companies follows this
    precise model – starting from the assumption of profit maximization, this formulaic approach with its
    mathematical models marches into the foreground. It is scarcely possible to find any contact with the
    living subject embedded in reality. Economics becomes marketing, finance, organization, bookkeeping
    and accounting. This is the way the cadaver is dissected. The different motives and characteristics of the
    persons involved no longer exist.

  35. The study of economics from a single perspective diminishes the subject. This is not a matter of whether
    profit maximization or mathematical formulas are good or bad. The only aspect of interest here is the
    (unplanned) consequence that not only is the fascination for the subject of economics – which is so
    central to our society – lost for most students, but it is also lost for the many who would like to use it as
    a tool.

  36. Now in life it is not unprecedented that someone is called to the very field of endeavor that he had
    previously criticized so harshly. When a few years later I received an invitation to teach at a university, I
    swore I would teach economics differently. And how could one do this better than by the example of
    founding a company?

  37. Me — an entrepreneur? In those days it was difficult to bring these words across my lips. And how to
    achieve this, pray tell? To get started, don’t you need a patent, plenty of capital and, above all, solid
    economic tools?
    That was, in any event, the prevailing wisdom….

  38. The Tea Campaign as a Case Study
    The concept of the Tea Campaign did not develop overnight. At the beginning it was not at all certain
    whether the project would involve tea or some other business. I had no firm notions what “my”
    company would look like. At the beginning my only goal was to combine academic theory with hands-on
    entrepreneurial practice.3

  39. Economists may prefer to explain this paradigm change through the theory of transaction costs. In the
    past, in light of the high transaction costs it made sense to keep most activities within the company.
    These days, however, because of increasing specialization and the low cost of communications, you can
    take advantage of pre-existing components outside the company.

  40. The companies that are doing this, for example, are Lafarge and Cemex in the building area. We’re doing this for urban construction, rural irrigation, insurance, timber etc. Well, this is only the beginning of the changes that are going to happen. Also, in Government, where are the new ideas going to come from? How are you going to change the system? This is your natural ally, and you could help with that.

  41. Then finally, this is obviously profoundly important for society. If you think that the problems are outrunning the solutions, you may well be right. But once we get to everyone a changemaker world, that can’t possibly be the case, because when something is stuck, everyone, everywhere is going to change it like smart white blood cell. Some people will say, “Boy this sounds very chaotic.

  42. Everyone a changemaker—how is that ever going to work?” I think this is something this group in particular would understand intuitively. People want to express love and respect in action, and we can trust them to be a changemaker for the good. We’ve got to help build the institutional arrangements to make that possible. That’s the management challenge of the moment. The people want to be contributors. And if we can let them, we have a great future and that’s what I think we’re all working on together.
    Thank you.

  49. Human beings, animals and plants all lived freely with the blessings of nature. It would
    have been better if this situation could have lasted forever, but when the humans began to
    prosper everything gradually changed.

  50. You have killed many animals that were once your friends and you have enjoyed your life at
    the expense of others. Animals come daily to tell me about their suffering. I am now full of
    wrinkles and my nature has become roug

  51. The people of Ghana really will help Japan! My worries disappeared, and I felt truly happy. I
    had always thought that Japan had to help Ghana. But through this experience, I realized that
    people in Ghana also wanted to help Japan in a time of n
    eed. You should bring your
    grandmother to Ghana, said my school teacher, who was worried for me. And a friend asked
    me, If I want to send money to Japan, who should I give it to
    The sad scenes following the earthquake in Japan were shown on TV every
    day. My heart
    ached, and my friends who watched TV were genuinely worried for Japan.
    In Ghana is a medical research institute named for Japanese scientist Hideyo Noguchi. The
    institute sent Ghanaian chocolate to children in Japan who were affected by the earthquake.
    Ghanaian chocolate is very tasty, so I am sure it made them very happy. It was not merely
    chocolate, but chocolate infused with care and encouragement.
    What I learned from this experience is that the world is one. Even between Africa and Asia
    which are so far away, news spreads easily. Usually, Japan is the one helping Ghana, but I
    realized that when Japan is in trouble, people in Ghana want very much to help.
    This is what I want to tell people in Japan. There are many people in Ghana who want to
    donate money to Japan, even though they cannot afford lunch for themselves. While we were
    collecting money for Japan, the lady who cleans our school happened to pass by. She carefully
    took out one cedi about US $0.65 wrapped inside her handkerchief
    and placed it in the
    donation box. The people of Ghana are truly kind.
    The desire to help people in need is shared by every human being. As long as people have this
    desire, the world will surely become a peaceful one, without war. This is what I came to
    feel through this experience

  52. Thank you entrepreneurship campus for always education us. And I agree with this article education is the greatest weapon that one can use to change the world . People like Blessing are working tirelessly to ensure that every young child get educated. It’s true that educate a woman and you have educated the whole nation congratulations Blessing.

  53. Minamata disease is o
    ne of the four major pollution

    related illnesses, and it occurs when
    organic mercury builds up in the body, affecting the brain and the central nervous system. The
    body becomes numb and immobile, and the mouth incapable of opening. Many people
    suffered fro
    m Minamata disease, including infants, children, and adults, both men and women.
    The cause of the disease was the wastewater from the Chisso factory in Minamata
    contaminating the fish and other creatures living in the sea and on the ocean floor, which were
    then eaten. In addition to human beings falling ill, Minamata Bay was also contaminated.
    Because of this, people could no longer fish in the bay. I remember clearly pictures of the many
    thousands of fish pulled from the sea, and left at the port without b
    eing handled

  54. That was about all I knew of Minamata disease, but there was more to the story.
    Several years later, large numbers of fish could be seen in the waters of Minamata Bay, which
    had been called the “sea of death.” Many rock oysters were found o
    n the rocks. And
    surprisingly, a new bacterium was discovered in the sea mud. This bacterium had acquired the
    ability to purify mercury. In other words, it had transformed itself in order to purify the sea.

  55. I believe that most educational subjects can be categories under general knowledge. In this case, it is so important that we can cover a lot of people in the world who don’t have access to that knowledge.

  56. I have never really thought about the future until Until two months ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So her parents started raising funds wherever they could and eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV, Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help

  57. But this girl was special. I understood it when I saw her picture. She was bald after chemotherapy, very pale, hollow-eyed and SMILING. She had such a radiant smile! This impressed me greatly. And not only me. I saw that most of my classmates brought money for her the next day. How courageous must she be to be able to smile in that situation! Then for a moment I tried to imagine myself in her place. How scary must it be to know that your life might end in a day, a week, a month But she seemed not to be afraid. Then suddenly I got an insight – I will also die, all people die. The only difference was that she knew it could happen soon. Death became real to her but for me it used to be unreal, like a phantom. I became aware of part of my future, the part that is common for all of us.

  58. Opening Up the Idea
    In Germany, in a meeting with a conventional start-up adviser, the would-be founder brings the idea;
    the idea, so to speak, is simply “there.” In the Laboratory, on the other hand, the idea is questioned,
    examined, refined. Like a sculptor, a founder can work the raw material and create an intellectual
    abstraction that reflects not only the concerns of the “artist” more clearly and more precisely, but that
    also develops a better view of the market. It is important to work out something that’s “a better fit,”
    something that dovetails with the personality of the founder, something that “feels” better to him or
    her than the initial idea.
    In each case, we try to figure

  59. In each case, we try to figure out what will truly engage the participant over the long term: what reflects
    his inclinations and desires, even those desires of which he might not be fully conscious. The method is
    akin to Frithjof Bergmann’s concept of New Work, where the question posed is: “What do we really,
    really want?” Thus the goal is not simply to accept the idea and then address possible steps to
    implement it, but rather to treat the initial idea as the raw material whose potential still needs to be
    explored.

  60. Education help people to gain skills and knowledge which will help them to be creative on solving different challenges and that will help on achieving sustainable development

  61. Although I mostly aggree with the article I have to leave a reminder: Many people become entrepreneurs because they want to take charge of their financial future and enjoy the freedom entrepreneurship can provide. While the allure of entrepreneurship is strong, there are some realities you should be aware of before you decide to take the leap.
    I hate to say it, but entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. If you’re not prepared, you could end up turning your dream into a nightmare.

  62. Loneliness is an occupational hazard for entrepreneurs.
    Until you grow your business to the point of bringing on other people, it’s going to be a one-person show. This means extended periods of time alone, and that can get to you. Even us introverts need a little human interaction every now and then.
    You need to get out from time to time. It can be a coffee shop or co-working space, but go where people gather. That contact with others might seem distracting, but it will actually help you mentally. The energy of others can help stir creativity in you.

  63. Running a business involves many moving parts. As you start out, you can manage them on your own. Eventually, there’s so much to manage that you can’t focus on things that will help your business grow. Today virtual assistants and freelancers can take on some of the load so you can focus on growing your business. Trying to be the “jack-of-all-trades” only hurts your business in the long run.

  64. In spite of what appeared to be appropriate planning, which considered a variety of aspects, there’s still
    a high degree of risk in this type of start-up. A lot of capital is required, and much advance preparation is
    needed, all of which will require financing. In addition, there are high operating costs like rent, interest
    and personnel. Unless there are a lot of customers immediately, as well as over the long term, there’s a
    danger that this start-up will end up the same way that many other restaurants have ended up in the
    past. As far as the likelihood of survival goes, it’s like placing bets in a casino – in both cases, the chances
    of success are statistically low. I put all my money on Red 19 and fervently hope it wins. If my restaurant
    doesn’t work out, then I’ll lose all of my own money, my borrowed capital, and all my work will have
    been in vain. I call this launching a business à la Roulette. Not recommended.

  66. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) encourages changes in knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to enable a more sustainable and just society for all. ESD aims to empower and equip current and future generations to meet their needs using a balanced and integrated approach to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. ESD is the term most used internationally and by the United Nations. It must be noted that Agenda 21 was the first international document that identified education as an essential tool for achieving sustainable development and highlighted areas of action for education.

  67. Fritz Fleischmann says that The nature of being an entrepreneur means that you fully embrace ambiguity and are comfortable with being challenged regularly. Especially when having to go out for startup fundraising. Choosing this career path is completely irrational because the odds of succeeding are dismal, but most succeed because of their unwavering belief, laser focus on delivering and persistence. This is something that we see constantly at CoFoundersLab company I lead, which is one of the largest networks for entrepreneurs.

    Starting a company is a riveting roller coaster of emotions with tremendous highs and at times, difficult lows, but one thing that always helps me through the ups and downs is to connect with some of the greatest minds. Below are just a few of my favorite quotes

    1. The best way to predict the future is to create it.

  69. Education is like an orange,
    Dangling on a tree ….
    Who can still remember this poem? The fruits of education are societal. Nothing is as catastrophic as an illiterate nation. The only way to empower your country men is through education.

    According to the UN, it is estimated that an indigenous language disappears every two weeks.
    Language is a crucial factor regarding issues related to education, technological development, environment protection, expression, social inclusion and many more. This is true talk

  71. entrepreneur essien from Nigeria advice campus members to embrace this treasure below 8 Habits for Success:

  73. Education is the key factor in the live of many in the world yet it is one of the goods that majority can’t afford many country are fighting to ward this and many has introduced free education. As nation let’s work together to help meet our government half way, let’s also educate couples about family planning so they have kids that they will be able to send to schools with quality education

  74. Education must not develop only Linguistic (word smart) and Logical-mathematical (number/reasoning smart) intelligence, but also Naturalist (nature smart), Musical (sound smart), Existential (life smart), Interpersonal (people smart), Bodily-kinesthetic (body smart), Intra-personal (self smart), and Spatial (picture smart)…

    — Joseph A. Schumpeter

  76. I so believe that education in and out of school, is a fundamental matter to change the world into a better place. because as long as people think they don’t need to know more, they really don’t know that they are missing something! from this point of view, everyone can be better at who they are by increasing knowledge.
