The awareness and discussions among the international communities are still lacking to materialize SDGs. There are yet countless challenges to conquer. A prominent hindrance in realizing SDGs results from cultural diversity and differing social economy status. It is imperative that these gaps be closed to ascertain the success of SDGs.
Therefore, this project aims at providing an international platform towards an international collaboration among Higher Education, research centers and community in imparting the knowledge of SDGs through ESD. The project will encompass three main programs. First, RCE Penang & RCE Tongyeong fellows will conduct a workshop for the local school teachers from Tongyeong city. The workshop will engage the community in understanding SDGs by nurturing autonomous dispositions among the teachers. It is hoped to lead the teachers to be agents of change for SDGs through ESD.
