The International Commission Report

In an effort to bolster the leadership and training of development practitioners, the Earth Institute convened a group of 20 eminent scholars and practitioners, from a variety of disciplines, in a year-long International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice. Launched in early 2007 and supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Commission aimed to identify practical initiatives to support an emerging field of cross-disciplinary “sustainable development practice".  In a report by the International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice released in 2008, and available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, and Spanish the  Commission provided the insights and recommendations that ultimately led to the development of the Master's in Development Practice programs.
