Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) offers an overarching concept for schools.
It enables them to see the interrelationships between aspects such as energy use, loss of biodiversity, impacts of global poverty and how culture and identity affect our values and understanding. Through ESDGC, learners can learn about the impacts of the decisions they make, how needs and rights are not always equal throughout the world and how climate change is affecting us all.
ESDGC is delivered through classroom activities, through whole school initiatives and through the partnerships that the school builds to enhance the holistic education that it delivers.
The UK Government has stated it will continue to support the delivery of development education in Wales. Consequently, DfES is working closely with the UK's Department for International Development (DfID) and key stakeholders in Wales to ensure there is a policy and systemic fit between DfID's policy and programme objectives and the delivery of the ESDGC agenda in Wales. We envisage that DfID support targeting development education at Key Stages 2 and 3, will dovetail with Welsh Government support available through the International Education Programme (IEP).
There is considerable interest in ESDGC among stakeholders from the public, private and third sectors in Wales. Many of these manage Government funded support programmes relevant to ESDGC delivery. There is therefore scope for the development of a single forum to aid regional delivery planning in response to learner and practitioner needs. The Welsh Government supports joint working between:
- local authorities
- funded stakeholder organisations (such as the British Council, CILT Cymru, Dolen Cymru, Holocaust Education Trust, etc.)
- third sector organisations engaged in delivery support, and school representatives.
