Im Folgenden finden Sie eine Übersicht unserer Auszeichnungen:
In 2009/2010, 2011/2012 and 2013/2014, Schools@University was awarded the title of "official project of the UN Decade of ESD".
The UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) sought to mobilize the educational resources of the world to help create a more sustainable future. Many paths to sustainability (e.g. sustainable agriculture and forestry, research and technology transfer, finance, sustainable production and consumption) exist and are mentioned in the 40 chapters of Agenda 21, the official document of the 1992 Earth Summit. Education is one ofthese paths. Education alone cannot achieve a more sustainable future; however, without education and learning for sustainable development, we will not be able to reach that goal.
In 2010, the United Nations proclaimed the Decade on Biodiversity 2011-2020. This provides an overarching framework on biodiversity, not only for the biodiversity-related conventions, but for the entire United Nations system and all other partners engaged in biodiversity management and policy development. The Decade will help to implement the Sustainabilty Agenda that was decided upon in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.
Outstanding projects are awarded and we are proud that Schools@University is among them. These projects work on biodiversity by protecting it or educating others about the importance of biodiversity.
Werkstatt N (Workshop S for Sustainability) is a German award by the Council on Sustainable Development, which awards German ideas and initiatives that show paths towards a more sustainable society. Every year, 100 ideas are getting an award and Schools@University was among them in 2013.
In 2012, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research proclaimed a Science Year to support sustainable developments and projects. During this year, the future of Planet Earth was discussed, asking questions like: How can we protect our environment? How do we want to live in the future? Do we have to change our economy? The Ministry supports more than 500 international projects in 62 countries on five continents to further support sustainability.
