4th European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development

The quest to pursue sustainable development is, and will remain, a top priority on the world´s agenda. As reiterated in the document “The Future We Want”, an output of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, there is a perceived need to foster international cooperation and encourage more joint initiatives in this important field. A contribution towards a dialogue has been provided by the European Environmental Education Fairs.

Further to the success of the first European Environmental Education Fair in 1996, the second European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development in 2006 (“Promoting Education for Sustainable Development in Europe”) and the third European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development in 2009 (“Renewable Energy and Climate Change: Thematic Challenges to European Schools and Universities”), the fourth European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development will be hosted in Hamburg.

The event will focus on the implementation of sustainable development in European cities and regions.
The event is a timely one, since it takes place as a follow-up to the UN Decade on Education for Sustainable Development and is one of the first major activities supporting the “Global Action Programme” developed by the United Nations, which specifically calls for more initiatives in the field of Education for Sustainable Development at the local level.

The 4th European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development is being organised by the Research and Transfer Centre “Applications of Life Sciences” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, under the auspices of the RCE Hamburg and Region. The RCE Hamburg and Region is part of a global network of Regional Centres of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (RCEs) coordinated by the United Nations University.
