You are welcome to CECOD home page, as we invite you to work with us in the struggle to realize the new vision of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) through schools; targeting all social groups for a common and sustainable future.
For the last 10 years, CECOD has been in a school of global thoughts with a conviction to translate global visions into local actions so as to improve people's quality of life; focusing on the young generation and grass-root communities.
CECOD acknowledges that "Today's" effects of climate change are as a result of mistakes that were made by the recent past generation; and notes with concern, that more severe consequences are to befall the future generation resulting from the mistakes of the present generation. There is urgent need to break this viscous cycle of global warming and climate change effects.
Whereas the key to reverse the trend largely lies in the hands of green house gas emitters, CECOD finds it imperative to bring the present young generation and local communities at the center of climate change adaptation and mitigation at all levels. It is against this background, that all CECOD development programmes are based on the Eco School concept using a community based approach. This home page therefore, shares with you CECOD experiences, best practices, aspirations and challenges in an effort to make our "mother" earth a good place to live in.
Once again, welcome to our home page and you are welcome to join the CECOD family.
"For Life to Continue, the Earth MUST Continue Living"
