Description of the talk:   At the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002, the Japanese proposed that the 10 years from 2005 to 2014 should be the decade of Education for Sustainable Development. In our presentation, we argue that everyone should work towards a common goal for ESD and we think that the base of ESD is Early Childhood Education. In this presentation, Dr. Nishiwaki will explain the current condition and the issues of “ECE for SD” in Japan using one case study. Dr. Tomita is visiting Canada to research about condition of Early Childhood Education here and will contribute to the discussion. It is expected that through questions and answers, we can view the state of future education in Canada and Japan.
