Conclusion Event of the Mentoring for ESD-Leadership Programme
At the end of May, all mentees from the first batch of the Mentoring for ESD-Leadership Programme met for the last time with their mentors in León (Mexico) for the six-day conclusion event. The final meeting of the seven-month blended learning programme addressed the influence of political framework conditions on sustainability issues and the importance of cultural sensitivity. In addition, the event focused on getting to know local practices to tackle global challenges. All participants visited the Metropolitan Park and the Explora Science Center, which successfully implement local ESD projects. Another highlight was the public event at the León campus of the Universidad de Guanajuato, where the mentees presented their projects to the public and made further valuable contacts. Following the conclusion event, the working group Mentoring of the ESD Expert Net met for three more days to plan the second batch of the programme, scheduled for 2019.
