Ireland: Considering the contribution of Lifelong Guidance in promoting Sustainable Development and Change
In 2020 the National Forum on Guidance in Ireland began an initial investigation into the role of Lifelong Guidance in promoting Sustainable Development and Change.

Guidance empowers the individual, encourages worker and learner retention, assists in facilitating the otherwise marginalised, promotes social inclusion and can aid with the reduction of discrimination and provision of opportunities.

The National Forum on Guidance provides an informal communication and cooperation facility for those involved in the provision of guidance and the development and support of guidance practitioners and services.

In 2021 the conversation continued to inform a submission to the Government Department of Education strategy on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) to 2030.

This session will provide an example of how Ireland is introducing the concepts of Sustainable Development into Career guidance, reflecting on the EU Green Deal agenda, and considering policies and guidelines for good practice in this sector.
