The Lesotho National Commission for UNESCO and UNESCO’s Office in Windhoek are organizing a series of workshops focusing on the role of media in education for sustainable development (ESD).
The first workshop, which took place on 11 November 2010, identified priority actions to strengthen media as partners in ESD. The second one, to be held from 8 to 10 December 2010, will focus on effective reporting on education for sustainable development.

The overall goal of this series of workshops is to promote greater understanding of sustainability and development among media professionals of Lesotho. The events aim to provide media practitioners with information and reporting skills on some priority issues for sustainable development, such as climate change, resource depletion (forests, fisheries and fresh water), biodiversity, extinction, pollution, etc. Theoretical sessions are combined with practical activities and discussions.

The direct beneficiaries of the workshops are 25 journalists/media practitioners from different media houses in Lesotho, both from audiovisual and print media.

Through this project, UNESCO together with other United Nations agencies contributes towards the implementation of the Lesotho ESD policy framework and addresses the important role that media can play in the promotion of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014). The Decade seeks to integrate the principles, values and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning, in order to address social, economic, cultural and environmental problems of the 21st century.
