Japan-U.S. Teacher Exchange program for Education for Sustainable Development

The 2011 Japan-U.S. Teacher Exchange Program for ESD will provide up to 48 U.S. teachers and administrators with the opportunity to travel to a three-day conference in the U.S. and to Japan for two weeks to learn about ESD efforts and strengthen ESD curricula in both countries. ESD is “a vision of education that seeks to balance human and economic well-being with cultural traditions and respect for the earth’s natural resources,” according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Up to 48 educators from Japan will travel to the United States in late April, and up to 48 educators from the U.S. will travel to Japan in late June. At the end of the program in each country, all 96 educators will gather for a few days of joint collaboration. For more information about the program, or to access the online application, please visit our website at The application deadline is January 6, 2011.
