Forging a Path to Quality Education and Climate Action
The May-July 2019 quarter is one of the most exciting times for the TROP ICSU project. We had an opportunity to present our educational efforts at the Science Education events during the 4th UN Science, Technology and Innovation Forum 2019 on 14 and 15 May 2019 at the UN headquarters in New York.
The TROP ICSU project was presented jointly with the International Science Council at the following two side events of the 4th annual UN STI Forum 2019 on 14 and 15 May at the United Nations Headquarters, New York.
"The role of Engineering and Science Education in empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality," organized by World Federation of Engineering Organizations & International Science Council, STC MG and Children and Youth MG
"Earth and Environmental Science Education for Sustainable Development," organized by Geology for Global Development. A summary of this side event is available here.
Aparna Joshi from TROP ICSU presented the project methodology, concept and educational resources which help to integrate topics in different disciplines to climate change awareness. Lucilla Spini from ISC presented the ISC's perspective on SDGs and education programs such as TROP ICSU.
The audience and participants at these sessions provided positive feedback on TROP ICSU and its educational resources, emphasizing and recognizing the urgent need for such an initiative. They also exhibited significant interest in collaborating and partnering with the project.
