In January 2014, a Pyramid workshop was organised by the Charles University Environment Center (Charles University in Prague) in collaboration with the United Nations Information Center in Prague as part of a full-day event on “The World after 2015 – Education for Sustainability” aimed at Czech professionals interested in education for sustainable development.
The workshop was attended by 25 participants from various sectors, including school teachers, university lecturers, university students, educators from NGOs and eco-centres, as well as several professionals from the private and the public sector. The day started with an overview of preparations for the UN post-2015 agenda and the SDGs process in the global context, followed by an introduction to the Pyramid 2030 initiative as an example of how to link (not only) global issues with local action. The Pyramid workshop discussion was
focused on “Sustainable Development (SD) and the Education System in the Czech Republic”.
During the discussions - corresponding to the four levels of the Pyramid - participants exchanged their views on education and SD from their various sector perspectives and shared their knowledge and experience in this field. They came up with a number of ideas of how the current system could be improved towards higher understanding and implementation of SD in education in the Czech Republic (e.g. activities for improved communication between sectors, discussion platforms, local activity coordinators, residential courses on SD for schools etc.).
With the capstone, the participants individually committed themselves to whatever seemed appropriate for their current situation – ranging from “being more open and trying to overcome typical Czech sceptical mind-set” to “informing friends and colleagues about the Pyramid workshop” and even “writing a letter to the governmental council on ESD about the Pyramid initiative and the workshop outcomes”. Due to the success of this workshop, there are currently discussions underway about the possibility of organising yet another Pyramid event later in 2014.
The Workshop was organised by the Charles University Environment Center (Charles University in Prague) in collaboration with the United Nations Information Center in Prague as part of the MOSUR project (Operational Programme Education for Competitivness).
