Kartikeya V. Sarabhai,
Director, CEE, was invited to attend the twenty-third
session of the UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial
Environment Forum being held at Nairobi, Kenya
from 21-25 February 2005.
He was a panelist at a joint special UNEP/UNESCO
event on the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable
Development. The event focused on “Charting
a Course to Sustainable Development: Challenges
and Opportunities for Local Actions”. It
was an opportunity to share the podium with Director
General UNESCO, Executive Director UNEP and Honourable
Ministers from Sweden , Kenya and China ; and
to present an overview, as well as the outcomes,
of the ESF Conference at Ahmedabad.
This is a recognition of the value of our deliberations
at, and outcomes of, the ESF Conference, and Shri
Sarabhai used it as an opportunity to take these
forward and, we hope, lead the way in the Decade.
