This inter-active webinar will explore ways of conceiving education for sustainable futures linked to a vision of social and environmental justice. Discussion and debate arising from the webinar will feed into our ongoing efforts in framing the work of the Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures (TESF) Network Plus. TESF aims to co-produce new knowledge on how education and training systems can support decent work, sustainable livelihoods, sustainable cities and climate action across four countries (India, Rwanda, Somalia and South Africa). The seminar will also provide an opportunity to engage with the work of TESF and find out more about the upcoming call for proposals which will be launched in December 2020.
