International Network of Teacher Education Institutions
ESD for 2030 Framework
In order to join the global dialogue promoting and implementing SDG 4 and in particular SDG 4.7 that focuses on ESD and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) and SDG 4.10 highlighting teacher education, NTNU signed the Memorandum of Cooperation with the Reorienting Education towards Sustainability of UNESCO in June, 2018.
In 2020, both institutes agreed to extend the MOC, and NTNU joined a new-launched network named the International Network of Teacher Education Institutions (INTEI) and a new ESD for 2030 Framework.
Charles Hopkins, who holds the UNESCO Chair in Reorienting Education towards Sustainability at York University in Toronto, Canada, and Prof. Irina Safitri Zen at Sustainability, Faculty of Built Environment, University Teknologi Malaysia visited NTNU on October 9th. Vice President Sung Yao Ting and Vice Dean Liaw Shyue Cherng welcomed them personally and a forum about aboriginal education and sustainable development was held.
College of Liberal Arts
The College of Liberal Arts aims to provide a high quality education for indigenous people toward sustainability. We bring together experts in different fields, and keep promoting international academic exchange with INTEI members to improve the quality of teaching and research of indigenous studies.
ESD for 2030
The UNESCO Chair at York University with its connected INTEI and IndigenousESD networks will continue to be active in these initiatives. With the launch of the ESD for 2030 Framework by UNESCO, we will create new opportunities for collective learning and joint research and other activities.
