Thanks to an initiative of the UNESCO Chair in Digital Culture and Arts in Education 7 partner universities from the ENO network have successfully applied for an ERASMUS+ BIP project. In addition to the mandatory online phases, a key component of this collaboration was the realization of a Summer School, which took place in Nuremberg, Germany, from July 10-14, 2023. The results of the event will be released in 2024 as part of a joint publication project.
This book explores the potential of arts and cultural education to contribute to on-going efforts to promote Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in line with UNESCO’s conceptualizations of the field. It builds on the experiences of arts educators working to build sustainable futures and portrays new and innovative approaches. Chapters comprise case studies that combine arts, culture, sustainable thinking and practices. They also include research from historical perspectives, evaluations of public policy measures and offer theoretical approaches and methodologies. The book unfolds the possible relationships between arts and cultural education and Education for Sustainable Development.
