People Engagement and Cultural Shifts for Sustainable Development

8 December 2011

Summary

This briefing note was developed for the CSD Education Caucus Team as a background document and to assist with defining the Team’s input at COP17. The paper focuses on people engagement, social learning and the cultural dimensions of sustainable development. It asks questions as to how Chapter 36 of Agenda 21 can be embedded in the COP dialogues, beyond Article 6, and warns against the omission of the people dimension in the legal frameworks and priority actions emerging from Durban and Rio.
