Apply for an Award

Are you part of a project or initiative that is using education to promote sustainability or advance the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals?

Would wider recognition of your work help strengthen your ability to continue it?  Consider applying for a 2022 Recognition Award!

Remember that education isn’t just about schooling.  In the context of sustainability, education is a broad concept that includes activities in formal education, non-formal education, and informal education:

Formal Education includes school systems from kindergarten to the end of high school, as well as technical institutes, colleges, and universities.

Non-formal Education includes education, training, and public awareness that occurs through organizations outside the formal school system, such as businesses and community-based organizations. 

Informal Education includes educational activities aimed at the general public and includes public and social media such as news and film, as well as events and campaigns.  

The deadline to submit your application for the 2022 ESD Recognition Awards is March 31, 2022. Download your Application Guide and Application Form here.
