The Sava and Danica Andjelkovic Endowed Lecture Series presents: Education for Sustainable Development: The Future Depends on Us!
Join the Student Engagement Center in welcoming Dr. Kim Smith '90, Portland Community College Sociology Instructor, and co-founder of the Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network (GPSEN). Following the Rio+20 Earth Summit, countries from around the world adopted Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). From issues of poverty and health to climate change and ocean conservation, these aspirational goals offer a vision for a sustainable future and depend on us all to reorient toward equity, well-being, peace, and justice. To do so, the United Nations has established a new decade, beginning in 2020, focused on the power of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). "ESD for 2030" calls for new skills, empowered youth, increased public awareness, and community partnerships. Dr. Smith will highlight sustainability projects around the world, UNESCO's ESD vision, and how we can all help create a sustainable future.
