A UN Conference set for May 17-19, 2021 aims to speed up existing plans to indoctrinate our children with its humanistic vision of sustainable development through education.

On Monday, the UN announced updates to its plans to ensure schools continue to advance its Sustainable Development indoctrination agenda.

Hanging in the balance are parental rights. Policies from past UNESCO conferences such as Education 2030 (the 2015 Incheon Declaration), lay the framework for undermining parents’ rights to teach values to their children if those values conflict with the values inherent to the UN’s Sustainable Development agenda.

Parents and educators: to help keep you informed with global changes in education, here’s the full-text version from Monday’s UN announcement:

The world needs education for sustainable development more than ever. A new global framework on ESD is currently under preparation with the aim of building education systems that support learners of all ages to be active contributors to more peaceful and sustainable societies and develop a sense of responsibility for our planet in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

In November 2019, the 40th session of UNESCO General Conference adopted a new global framework on ESD called ‘Education for Sustainable Development: Towards achieving the SDGs’ or ‘ESD for 2030’.

Acknowledged by the UN General Assembly through a Resolution on ESD, the new framework aims to scale up action from the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 – 2014) and the Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD (2015 – 2019).

The new framework will be officially launched at the UNESCO World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development in Berlin on 17-19 May 2021. The Conference was initially planned for June 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UNESCO will shortly publish A Roadmap for ESD for 2030 which will be discussed at regional online launch events to take place during the second half of 2020, to engage Member States and other stakeholders and invite country commitments on ESD.

UNESCO is also planning a series of webinars on the key reflections from the COVID-19 crisis and on the way forward with the new ESD for 2030 framework. These monthly webinars will start in September 2020 until April 2021, as a lead up to the World Conference in Berlin in May.
