This booklet is the result of a National Symposium and consultation process with over seventy organisations around Australia interested in the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD).
As such it represents advice from the Australian community to their Government on how they would like to the DESD planned, developed and implemented over the next ten years.
The organisations involved call upon the Australian Government and the Australian National Commission for UNESCO to carefully consider their advice and recommendations on a National Framework for the DESD and to use it, and further consultation, as a basis for developing a National Strategic Plan for the Decade.
