Dear Friends and Colleagues,
In December 2015, the world celebrated the international climate change
agreement reached at the end of United Nations Climate Change Conference
(COP21) held in Paris. Critics believe that the Paris accord does not go far
enough to protect the planet. Nevertheless, the COP21 agreement is widely
considered to be the turning point for the world as it is the most
far-reaching climate commitment made so far by 195-member states of the
Against this backdrop, the academic community and other stakeholders from
around the world will get-together in Karlsruhe, Germany from the 19th to
21st of October 2016 to examine the pivotal role of education and training
in creating a climate-friendly world. The conference will provide a global
platform to exchange views on integrating climate change and environmental
sustainability at all levels of education. During the three-day event, the
delegates will share their unique approaches and innovative ideas for
preparing students and learners to become responsible leaders and stewards
of our planet and transform the world's fossil fuel-driven economy.
This year’s global gathering of committed and like-minded delegates from
across the globe will be an opportunity to deliberate on how education can
be reshaped to address the 21st century challenges. Further to sharing
knowledge on education for sustainability, the upcoming event also provides
an excellent networking opportunity with peers and experts in Europe and
beyond. An optional excursion/ get-together will take place on Saturday the
22nd of October 2016.
If you and/ or your colleagues are interested in attending the conference
