Educating for Sustainable Development (ESD) is an interdisciplinary system, process and form of education, that is acknowledged as essential in reaching all Sustainable Development Goals. Focusing on the provision of water education, is a necessary and powerful management tool for the achievement of water security and a “new water culture” in the Mediterranean.

The EU funded WES project is organising a regional activity to provide technical assistance and strengthen the capacities of the WES Partner Countries to be better capacitated to raise awareness and educate on how treated wastewater and Non-Conventional Water Resources (NCWRs) can contribute to addressing the region’s serious water challenges, through Education for Sustainable Development.

The on-line training will consist of two 3-hour webinars:

Webinar 1: Wednesday 23 February 2022

Webinar 2: Wednesday 9 March 2022

Through the training, participants will:

  • Increase their knowledge and competences in designing and implementing Water related Education for ESD with emphasis on reuse of appropriately treated water deriving from WWT Plants and NCWRs.
  • Enhance their capacities to implement learner-centred and participatory ESD didactic approaches relating to water in their own educational contexts.
  • Learn about how WWT and NCWRs applications in schools and other institutions, combined with appropriate ESD, can transform the educational institution into a learning lab for sustainability (Whole Institute Approach).
