Promotion and policy influence for sustainable development in Ukraine: from civil society actions towards national concept and standards
Promotion and policy influence for sustainable development in Ukraine: from civil society actions towards national concept and standards
The project aims to contribute to the achievement of the overall target of the Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) 2005-2014, which is to include ESD in every nation’s curricula and educational systems. The UNECE ESD Strategy’s overall objective is to equip people with knowledge of and skills in sustainable development, making them more competent and confident while at the same time increasing their opportunities for leading healthy and productive lifestyles in harmony with nature and with concern for social values, gender equity and cultural diversity. The Project will promote development of the National Sustainable Development Concept (NSDC) with broad public participation. It will ensure environmental sustainability though the eradication of areas of specific policy neglect and curbing governance failures. The initiative has the objective to develop a National Sustainable Development Concept. There is an intention to develop this strategy via an open participative process. A partnership approach involving policy makers and civil society seems the most reasonable approach to carry out this large initiative. The Project aims at empowering people to take the future of their societies in their own hands by fostering ways of responsible and future-oriented thinking. This concerns everyone, from large institutions to individual members of society. In other words, NSDC needs political backing but cannot be brought about through a top-down approach, it needs to be generated bottom-up through consultations and multiple alliances. Therefore, forging broad yet focused partnerships seems vital. The Project will develop recommendations and proposals by state bodies to strengthen Ukraine’s policies on sustainable development. It will develop a Platform for further promotion, conduct an information campaign to inform the public and all stakeholders. The Project will initiate creation of the National coordination mechanism, e. g. National Sustainable Development Council.
