Latin American project among winners of UNESCO Prize for education for sustainable development

3 November 2015

UNESCO will deliver the first edition of the Japan Prize for Education for Sustainable Development to three initiatives around the world.

Among the winners is the SERES Association, which operates in El Salvador and Guatemala, for its project aimed at young people.

The initiative consists of appointing young people to act as ambassadors and train others on sustainability issues.

These people then apply their knowledge in their communities and help counter climate change.

UNESCO Prize-winning initiatives will receive $ 50,000 during a ceremony to be held on November 5 at the agency’s headquarters in Paris.
