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). 

In its declaration, the United Nations General Assembly defined ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) as a “learning process (or approach to teaching) based on the ideals and principles that underlie sustainability and is concerned with all levels and types of learning to provide quality education and foster sustainable human development – learning to know, learning to be, learning to live together, learning to do and learning to transform oneself and society.”

At the end of the DESD in 2014, the UNESCO World Conference held in Japan announced the Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD aimed at generating and scaling up ESD actions at all levels and in all areas of education, training and learning to accelerate progress towards sustainable development to the post-2015 agenda.

While ESD is implemented worldwide under the GAP, in support of further promoting ESD in Southeast Asia, the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (MEXT), in cooperation with the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, have shown their collective commitment to promoting best practices in ESD in schools across Southeast Asia by organising the SEAMEO-Japan Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Award.  The award scheme has been held annually since 2012.

The objectives of the SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award are:

  1. To raise awareness on 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;
  4. To encourage networking among schools and communities which implement ESD practices in 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 for 2017: “Improving Health and Nutrition”

Large numbers of school children in Southeast Asia suffer from ailments such as diarrhea, acute respiratory diseases, worms and dental caries, all of which are preventable and caused mainly by poor hygiene. These illnesses seriously impair a student’s physical and cognitive development and have a negative impact on their ability to learn and their prospects *.

To promote Education for Sustainable Development in schooling system, “Health and Nutrition” is one of the most important issues and concerns of policy makers and educational leaders in Southeast Asian countries. 

Considering the importance of “Health and Nutrition” at the school level in Southeast Asia, the theme of SEAMEO-Japan ESD Award in 2017 is “Improving Health and Nutrition”     

“Improving Health and Nutrition” can refer to any action or programme that transform schools into healthy learning environments where routine hygiene practices turn into long-term habits. This also includes the school programmes/activities to prevent local diseases and improve health condition, lunch pogramme, water and sanitation, and overall nutrition of students, as well as increase nutrition awareness and health preventive education of parents and community. 

The objectives of this year’s award scheme are:

  1. To raise awareness of “Health Promotion and Nutrition programme integrated in education for the promotion of sustainable development in schools and communities in Southeast Asia and Japan.
  2. To promote and share initiatives and good practices that support sustainable development through the improvement of health and nutrition into school plan, teaching and learning practices, and daily routines of students.   
  3. To encourage schools to develop and improve current ESD practices in school activities and programmes.

Under the theme of “Improving Health and Nutrition,” the school entry should cover the following criteria: 

  1. The entry should be relevant to the theme and the scope of “Improving Health and Nutrition” as defined above.
  2. The entry should demonstrate how the school’s programme can improve health and nutrition conditions of students; transform the school into the healthy learning environments; and promote sustainable healthy habits of students, parents and community.
  3. The entry should clearly demonstrate the integration of “Improving Health and Nutrition” practices in the entire school’s policy, management plan, participatory planning and implementation, curriculum, teaching and learning practices, daily routines of students, student activities, partnership efforts, parent and community participation, and so on.
