Sustainable Societies: Responsible Citizens

In September 2011 OMEP delegates participated in the 64th Annual UN DPI/NGO Conference in Bonn entitled Sustainable Societies: Responsible Citizens. OMEP provided an exhibition, distributed copies of Education for Sustainable Development in the Early Years and presented the case for Early Childhood involvement in various workshops. This was a significant UN initiative organised in preparation for the coming Earth Summit Rio+20 in 2012.

The Conference called upon governments in accordance with human rights, the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, and respective capabilities to adopt 17 Sustainable Development Goals: These included the aim:

By 2030, national governments reorient all national aims and objectives towards achieving sustainable societies and will mainstream sustainable development into all national educational policies and curricula.
