A ‘Workshop on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)’ was jointly organized by ENVIS Centre & Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) Chandigarh on 18th December, 2012 at PSCST office. The workshop provided a forum for discussing the issue of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). The focus of interaction was to assess the current status, nature of ESD related activities and good practices implemented by RCE Chandigarh partners in the region. Its objective was also to explore opportunities for collaborative efforts for addressing ESD related issues at local level and with RCE  Srinagar.

 Forty five participants from departments, universities/colleges, schools, NGOs and PSCST officials attended the event. The workshop was inaugurated by Dr. Neelima Jerath, Executive Director PSCST / Head RCE Chandigarh.
