Education for Sustainable Development beyond the Campus (EduCamp) Closing event and hand over of the ESD Resource Kits to the Minister of Education

Creating consciousness among school children for sustainable development. Providing them with practical and fun learning experiences that go beyond the text book. Connecting schools and universities for joint efforts for the education of Egyptian children. This is what the EduCamp consortium worked for in the past three and a half years.

The main objective of the project was to promote and implement ESD in Egypt nationwide and within all education levels. The consortium members of this project included Egyptian  and European universities, NGOs, and international organizations.

Among the achievements of the project are:

  • Development of ESD resource kits for schools to provide activities for teachers and students that link directly to the existing school curriculum.
  • Development of a School Teachers’ Training Programme (STTP) to enable teachers to implement ESD and use the kits in their teaching activities.
  • Establishment of seven Centres of Excellence hosted by seven Egyptian Universities (Cairo, Zagazig, Fayoum, Alexandria, Suez Canal, The American University in Cairo and  Heliopolis University). They aim to promote and support the introduction of ESD into the education system, provide teachers’ training programs and consultancy services.

The closing conference of the project will bring together project partners, professors, teachers, educators and interested public. During the conference the ESD resource kits will be  presented and officially handed over to the Minister of Education Dr. Mahmoud Abo El-Nasr.
