Areas of Action
The UN Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) was instrumental in ensuring the inclusion of sustainability as a key value into educational strategies in German educational provision inside and outside the formal system.
IDEAL’s three main project partners, the International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE), the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL), and StudyPortals (SP), met on 8 to 10 September in Oslo, Norway, to assess progress and discuss future activities.
In September 2014, four education professionals from Asia and Africa spent four weeks conducting research at the UIL Library, as part of the UIL CONFINTEA Scholarship programme.
