The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is calling nominations for UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development.
The Prize will be awarded for the first time in 2015. Generously funded by the Government of Japan, the Prize consists of three annual awards of US $50,000 for each recipient.
Within the framework of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development honours outstanding efforts of individuals, institutions, organizations or other entities engaged in ESD activities.
In 1945, UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, which political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace.
