Abstract

The article presents the results of the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development held in Nagoya, Japan, on 10-12 November 2014. The aim of the Conference was primarily to review the results of the Decade – the final report of the Decade, Shaping the Future We Want, was introduced in which the role of education as a tool for the overall transition towards sustainability was stressed. The Global Action Programme as a follow-up to the Decade was also introduced; commitment to implement it was accepted in the Aichi-Nagoya Declaration. The options for the Czech Republic to become involved in these international activities are briefly reviewed.
