ESD (Education Sustainable Development)
Education is the key to development. In this respect Uganda has put in place policies and strategies aimed at providing every citizen at all levels, with an education that is holistic, relevant and of good quality. Issues of development have always been around us. The concept of “sustainable development’ is not entirely new.

What is Global Citizenship Education (GCED)?

This refers to a way of understanding, acting and relating one’s self to others and the environment, based on universal values, through respect for diversity and pluralism.

The core themes of GCED are tailored around the culture of peace; Peace, Human Rights, Globalization, Cultural,  Diversity, Sustainable development.

The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was founded by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in May 1979. With 52 member states, ISESCO is one of the largest international Islamic organizations and specializes in the fields of education, science and culture.

The UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) links educational institutions across the world around a common goal: to build the defences of peace in the minds of children and young people. The over 11,500 ASPnet member schools in 182 countries work in support of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and quality education in practice.

ASPnet – a driver for innovation and quality in education – is recognized as an effective tool for reaching target 4.7 on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) of Sustainable Development Goal 4 – Education 2030.
