You have UNESCO status. Are you independent?

UNESCO is an “administration” that forces or finances no one. One cannot even be dependent on UNESCO. UNESCO came up with Official Status with the UNITED NATIONS Decade of Education for Sustainable Development to show teachers civil society programs of “extraordinary educational value” to their students. It is a seal of trust, and it is not easy to gain, especially not 4x renewed, each time with higher demands.

A few words on the UN, UNESCO and Education For Sustainable Development
In 1992, good people at the UN organized the UN Earth Summit, to establish a new framework that would end the unbridled destruction (un-sustainable exploitation) of Earth by dirty industry, and place sustainable development at the heart of global and national politics. The resulting document listed 40 chapters showing the way to go in forest management, education etc. In the spirit of “what we gotta do for a good 21st Century” they called it Agenda 21. Dirty industry was pissed.

At local levels, Local Agenda 21 offices were to localize the process – assess the 40 theme fields, detect problems, and to fix them bring together all stakeholders involved for dialogue : economy, ecology, culture, civil society, politics, citizens, education. Dirty industry and politics were pissed.

This process is of course in the hand of the member states (the UN is not a monarchy, it cannot force anyone), and it was done all over Western Europe (others don’t care so much about the planet; that’s not the UN’s fault).

In the year 2,000, civil society got entrance into the UNITED NATIONS (under General Secretary Kofi Annan), – because the global challenges require all of us to get involved. Politics and business cannot do this alone. Al Gore wrote “A new superpower awakens. Civil society is rising its beautiful head.” Dirty industry and politics were pissed.

The Universal World Exposition expo2000 in Hannover was all about sustainability solutions. The first crew in charge was fabulous, but dirty industry and politics were afraid of the looming impact on media and society! They replaced them. The second crew was also still good. They replaced them. The third crew melted it down into an amusement park and shocking entry fees to turn people off! Inside the pavillons and in the conference program were still gems galore, but the media just reported on $9 deutschmark Bratwurst. I know it all, I was there for 5 months, as info personnel. And after work, I spent 5 hours each day with global experts, discussing my pitch for a badass education program, and folks were flashed.

The UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development was called upon by Prof. Abe in Japan, a cool guy, saying with today’s humanity’s complex destructive impact on the planet, it’s no longer enough that youth learn the common subjects at school. So, the good people at the UN brought in the idea, had it passed (no way to say no to that, really), and entrusted its education branch UNESCO to run it.

Experts have worked off their butts and brains to develop a teaching methods, resources and curricula that would help the young generation think in systems, across disciplines, comprehend their personal and collective impact on the living planet, and how to transform their own lives and society. This is by definition the nightmare of dirty industry.

Of course, the Decade is only a beginning. After all, the experts in it don’t even know of youth leadership. But you don’t either, or you know of it, but haven’t activated in all schools of your region. If you know but don’t care, it would make you even worse than the educators and scientists at UNESCO. So, no fretting, things advance into the societal fabric, the Decade has opened minds and doors, and good people build on it.

Today, in conspiracy theories about the super rich bank dynasties, dirty industries, world government, you now also find the UN and Agenda 21 mixed in, called an evil plot to enslave people. Guess who scripted those myths to smear the UN and Agenda 21. It is dark money groups of dirty industry, with the goal to estrange people from evolving and strengthening the UN as a planetary framework and institution that can reign up powerful dirty industry, finance and states, just like national law has reigned in robber baron bullies.

But even people I know, kind, spiritual, activists, now feverishly share this bullshit myth on social media. Of course, none of them has ever

  • read Agenda 21
  • met anyone involved at the UN or any administration level really
  • heard of the steps, process, struggles and battles at the UN over the past 70 years by badass changemakers
  • understood how it is part of breaking dirty industry’s dominance of inter/national and local politics.

and they serve the dark money groups and dirty industry by smearing the UN and Agenda 21 in one pot with evil banking dynasties and secret service plots. See, “adult generations messing up young people’s future” is a far bigger issue than political parties. Also the “good ones” act like morons. Not good enough. 

“The idea of education is not to turn us into your kind of adults. But into better adults than you have been.” – Adora Svitak
