The Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNESCO Santiago) has played an important role building awareness and rallying all actors concerned around education for sustainable development. To further this end, the Organisation is promoting changes with the potential to enhance the quality of life of present and future generations through the reconciliation of economic growth, social development and the protection of our natural environment. Clearly, education is the key instrument to bring about the social change required to make us aware and supportive of the objectives of Education for Sustainable Development at an individual and collective level. This why the United Nations Organisation has proclaimed the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, an initiative that opens a new window of opportunity for placing education at the very centre of debate, and identifying solutions that may ensure a sustainable future for all.
