Welcome to ESDGC in Cardiff

This blog brings together news, information and resources for Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) in Cardiff Schools. It is brought to you by the Cardiff Sustainable Education Network (CSEN).

What is ESDGC?

Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) develops people’s skills to take action that improves our quality of life now and for future generations.

Since sustainable development and global citizenship are both relatively new concepts and potentially complex and intellectually challenging, we need a sustainability literate, globally aware population. This is the challenge for education at every level.

Visit the ‘Getting started with ESDGC’ to find out more.

What is CSEN?

The Cardiff Sustainable Education Network focusses on education and raising public awareness on issues of education, sustainability and the environment by promoting ESDGC to schools, colleges and the public in Cardiff and surrounding areas. CSEN has been in operation for a number of years and is a constituted network with over 100 members.

In 2014 CSEN joined forces with C3SC’s Cardiff Environment Network. C3SC is supporting CSEN to ensure the network can continue offering opportunities for cross-sector engagement between a variety of partners.
