Millennium Development Goals Project Presented in Romania

The project “Millennium Development Goals Achievement. Involving high school students and educators in development education programmes and project” of the Romanian NGO APSD – Agenda 21 was presented during the 7th edition of the International Conference “Challenges of the Knowledge Society – CKS 2013”, organized by “Nicolae Titulescu” University of Bucharest, between 17th and 18th May 2013.

Ms. Elena Nedelcu, Associated Professor at the University of Bucharest and member of the national coordination team of the project, analysed the results of the project as a case study for her scientific article “Cooperation and Education for Sustainable Development in the Globalization Era” (ISSN 2068-7796). The article explores the topic of sustainable development seen as a fundamental objective of the millennium. The first part of the article offers a theoretical analysis of three main variables and the connection between them: globalization, democratization and development. The second part of the article focuses on the importance and the practice of sustainable development during the globalization era. This second part analyses the case of APSD-Agenda 21 as an example of the involvement of civil society in education for sustainable development in Romania, focusing on the activities and the results of the project.

The project is co-financed by the European Commission through the program Non State Actors and Local Authorities in Development. Public Awareness and education for development in Europe.
