SUSTAINABILITY, PEACE AND EDUCATION – exploring promise and practice
Hosted by the Centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE)
Convenors: Julia Paulson and Angeline Barrett
Sustainable development and education’s role within it is an important contemporary priority for Comparative and International Education. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) now command widespread global attention. At the same time actors across educational institutions and community settings, have responded creatively to the social and environmental challenges of sustainability with innovative programmes, practices and pedagogies.
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the British Association for International and Comparative Education (BAICE), the one-day symposium will bring together diverse perspectives on education and sustainability, including those drawn from the study of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), sustainability within development studies, and sustainable peace. The Symposium aims to critically interrogate the SDG agenda, but also to explore the creative possibilities through which educational policies, practices, pedagogies and processes might embody or enable improved sustainability.
