The “Sustainable Urban Development and Livable Garden Community Programme” (SUC) is a three years initiative launched in January 2015 by UNEP and JCEP (China). The initiatives will contribute to build sustainable cities and communities in China and in other developing countries.
The book, published in 2015, focuses on the challenges of the transition to responsible, sustainable lifestyles and examines developments over the last decade in relation to:
- the creation of awareness of consumer citizenship, civic involvement and environmental stewarship
- research, projects and publications on education for responsible living
- the creation and implementation of relevant teaching methods and materials
- policies on education for sustainable consumption and lifestyles
- global processes for education on sustainable development
The articles deal with topics related to policy support, institutional approaches, educators, young people, and local communities. They draw attention to successful initiatives and reflect upon what still needs to be done. The book also looks at the roles that central actors such as PERL (The Partnership for Education and research about Responsible Living) play in this process.
The book, published in 2012, focuses on responsible living as the individual`s contribution to sustainable Development. We belive that sustainable Development can only be achived if individual freedom and responsibilities are balanced on a high Level while taking social, ecological and economic needs into account. A crucial element to achieve this is to integrate different perspectives of stakeholders and co-create a joined approach through partnerships. While partnerships develop New opportunities for the stakeholders involved they also require a readiness for mutual understanding, respect and courage to co-create.
Since 2001 the Consumer Citizenship Network (CCN) and The Partnership for Education and Research about Responsible Living (PERL), have produced a number of research publications. These research publications are a part of an effort to encourage changes in behaviour that will create a more sustainable future in terms of environmental integrity, economic viability, and social justice for present and coming generations.
Potlux is a streamlined online platform where students, sustainability advisors, and professors submit content about their campus environmental projects. It provides a catalogue of initiatives that anyone can use to learn about other colleges' practices and their key contacts. By sharing information and connecting with each other, colleges can adopt new projects onto their sustainability platform and contact one another for support.
Education for sustainable development is the driving force behind UNESCO GREEN CITIZENS project. We want to show leaders, farmers, workers and the parents of tomorrow how crucial sustainable development is for the future of our societies and what they can do to solve this problem. By highlighting the stories of people from all around the world through a traveling exhibition, everyone can learn from one another the efforts and opportunities within the field of sustainable development.
Le tourisme durable et l'ecotourisme servent a promouvoir le developpement durable en ce sens que le tourisme durable offre le respect environnementale et social dans toutes les etapes du voyage. Tandis que l'ecotourisme sert a valoriser des projets environnementaux en dynamisant l'economie locale. Ceci veut dire que l'ecotourisme doit avoir un impact positif.
Un produit touristique durable constitue une alternative au tourisme de masse, qui s'avere parfois destructeur vis-a-vis de l'emvironnement, en proposant une autre maniere de concevoir le voyage. L'ecotourisme qui est une variante du tourisme durable se concentre sur le maintient de la diversite biologique, sur l'engagement des tours operateurs pour la protection de la variete des destinations qu'ils proposent et enfin sur l'attitude responsable des voyageurs. Ce type de tourisme permet aux populations locales de pouvoir profiter financierement de la venue des touristes sur leur territoire.

The city of Gothenburg has a comprehensive Climate Program, spanning 2050, where emissions, strategies and actions are connected. The city has also paved the way for calculations of consumption and carbon footprint of its citizens.
The program involves changing to renewable energy and reducing consumption of resource-intensive goods. It launched in 2014 and strongly builds on a number of earlier climate actions. The program also includes creating opportunities for the residents of Gothenburg to reduce their carbon footprint, e.g. by providing more efficient public transport, smart urban planning and supporting climate friendly activities e.g. urban farming.
Gothenburg aims to be one of the most progressive cities in the world in addressing climate change. The city wants to show its citizens that it is possible to lead a good life without contributing to climate change and is prepared to do this with major per capita investments for climate actions in order to reach the climate goals.
