The Report of Best Practices: 2013 SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award
Theme: Values Education

This 2nd report of the SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award, entitled “Best Practices: 2013 SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award” highlights outstanding programmes on Values Education implemented by four schools across Southeast Asia which were the overall winners of the 2013 SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award. We hope this report will improve schools and educators’ knowledge about value-based education and extend their current practices.

The SEAMEO Secretariat wishes to express our appreciation to MEXT for its partnership in promoting ESD among schools and communities in Southeast Asian countries. We would also like to thank Southeast Asian Ministries of Education and SEAMEO Regional Centres for promoting this initiative to schools in their respective countries. Special appreciation goes to the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd for their collaboration and contribution as supporting partners. We would also like to thank the Judging Committee, namely: Professor Dr Kazuyuki Mikami, President of the Miyagi University of Education; Dr Prapatpong Senarith, Former Deputy Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Education, Thailand; Mr Yoshiaki Sato, Director for Overseas Cooperation, International Affairs Division, MEXT, Japan; and Mr Danilo Padilla, ESD Programme Coordinator and Liaison Officer, UNESCO Bangkok.

We are thankful to all the participating schools and for their willingness to share and exchange their school practices on the SEAMEO website. This generosity of this knowledge sharing will enable more schools and communities to plan an effective values-based education programme that instils positive values among students, teachers and communities for sustainable development.

I. Introduction

In 2002, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 57/254 and declared the period 2005-2014 as the “United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development” (DESD) and appointed UNESCO as the lead agency in coordinating and promoting the implementation of the decade.

In its declaration, the United Nations General Assembly defined ESD as a “dynamic and expansive undertaking that envisions a world where every person has the chance to benefit from educational opportunities and to learn the lifestyles, behaviours and values necessary to create a sustainable future.”

A series of regional and national DESD launches followed the declaration in different parts of the world. The DESD offers an opportunity to promote the vision of a more sustainable and just global community through different forms of education that enable individuals to develop the understanding, knowledge, skills and values necessary to improve the quality of life in a sustainable manner. ESD consists of three pillars of sustainable development: society; environment; and economy. The perspectives of ESD under each pillar are as follows:

  1. Socio-Cultural perspectives: human rights, peace and human security, gender equality, cultural diversity and intercultural understanding, health, HIV/AIDS and governance.
  2. Environmental perspectives: natural resources, biodiversity, climate change, rural transformation, sustainable urbanization, and education for disaster risk reduction and mitigation.
  3. Economic perspectives: poverty reduction, corporate responsibility and accountability, and market economy.

In support of the DESD, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (MEXT) in cooperation with UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. are committed to promote best practices in ESD in schools across Southeast Asia by organizing the SEAMEO-Japan Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Award. The award has been organized annually from 2012 to 2014.

The objectives of the SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award are:

  1. To raise awareness of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in schools and communities across Southeast Asia;
  2. To promote ESD best practices in schools and communities across Southeast Asia;
  3. To share and exchange knowledge and best practices on ESD in schools across Southeast Asia and Japan; and
  4. To encourage networking among schools and communities which implement ESD practices in both Southeast Asian countries and Japan.

The first awards scheme in 2012 was conducted under the theme of: “Education for Disaster Risk Reduction”. This initial competition attracted entries from 69 schools in Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

II. Theme of the 2013: “Values Education”

Since the start of the 21st Century, our global society has witnessed dramatic changes brought about by modernisation, globalisation, economic development, technological advances, materialism and consumerism. These factors have a profound influence on our daily lives and in some circumstances we have witnessed the deterioration of values particularly among our pupils and the younger generation.

“Values” are defined broadly as the principles and fundamental convictions that act as general guides to behaviour and the standards by which particular actions are judged as good or desirable (Halstead and Taylor, 2000). Values such as respect, honesty, compassion, care, humility, understanding, tolerance, inclusion, resilience, responsibility and social skills are essential qualities that equip our students with the necessary skills to thrive in this demanding modern age. Many countries emphasise the importance of education in equipping students with the correct values so that they can meet the challenges ahead and live healthy, contented and satisfying lives.

The “Education for Global Citizenship” study, which was published by the Education Above All (EAA) project in 2012 following the launch of the UN Secretary-General’s Global Education Initiative, mentions that “values education and life skills education typically include core values such as empathy for other human beings and respect for human dignity, together with core life skills, including intra-personal skills such as emotional awareness, and inter-personal skills such as communication, cooperation, problem-solving, conflict resolution and advocacy.” Values education, as such, is a widely acceptable umbrella title; however, it tends to suggest a focus more on the ethical aspects of individual conduct without linking fully to issues of human rights, or civic responsibilities. In the same study, values education is but one of several themes under “education for global citizenship”; the others being peace education, human rights education, citizenship or civic education, etc.

Considering the importance of values education, within the school system, to promote Education for Sustainable Development, the theme of the 2013 SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award is: “Values Education”. This concept aims to raise awareness and promote positive human values among both teachers and students.

Therefore, the purposes of the 2013 SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award with the theme of “Values Education” are:

  1. To raise awareness about the importance of values education among schools and communities in Southeast Asia;
  2. To promote and share best practices and initiatives of values-based education approaches within schools and communities in Southeast Asia; and
  3. To enable schools to develop and improve current practices in values education.

Under the theme of “Values Education”, the award’s scheme will select schools with the best practices that promote students’ understanding and knowledge of values that develop a positive transformation of attitudes and student behaviour through an effective school policy, management plan, activities, curricular, and teaching strategies.

The entry should demonstrate the school’s value-based programme which has addressed at least one area of the following pillars of Education for Sustainable Development’s perspectives:

  • Socio-Cultural perspectives: human rights, peace and human security, gender equality, cultural diversity and intercultural understanding, health, HIV/AIDS and governance;
  • Environmental perspectives: natural resources, biodiversity, climate change, rural transformation, sustainable urbanization, and education for disaster risk reduction and mitigation;
  • Economic perspectives: poverty reduction, corporate responsibility and accountability, and market economy.

III. All schools in Southeast Asian countries are invited to enter the competition

All public and private elementary/ secondary schools in 11 Southeast Asian countries namely Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam are invited to submit the information of the school’s practice/ project/activity related to the theme.
