Quick Overview

Dr. Hopkins shares his experience in drafting Chapter 36 of Agenda 21 towards the 1992 Rio Summit. He shares a unique story, which reveals the significance of education towards a sustainable future. Such significance is renewed and exemplified in SDG4, which constitutes a crucial means of implementing all sixteen other goals. Mr. Hopkins points out that indigenous worldviews should not be neglected. Instead, we should engage them, learn about them, and find appropriate ways to incorporate them for quality education. Since education does not serve a single purpose, various “educations” are needed. Values and ethics that distinguish the human civilization – the core element in the common journey of Mr. Hopkins and the Earth Charter – should be passed on through education and for generations to live by.
