Education for sustainable development


Sustainable development is a primary concern for humans and the planet. It is often linked to the protection of the environment, but there are also social and economic aspects that should not be forgotten. Gaïa Education Centre focuses on the social and solidarity dimension. “How am I concerned?” and “how can I act for sustainable development at my level?” are the questions the centre helps participants to answer, thanks to different activities.
