Aug 30 - Sep 3, 2010: Conference for ESD - in Ulaanbaatar By Tomas Hertzman, former director of Ramboll Sweden
This mail is targetting both UN family and a potential support to the conference,and my network to challenge you to be present in the Conference.

Dear friends. I attach an advert for the Conference, which I have mentioned will take place here in UB at shift August- September 2010. At least I mentioned it to some of you!
But the news is that the Secretariat (see the mail of Bolortunga above in cc) is intensively engaged in the preparation and the first hesitating steps are taken and they are now rapidly and devoted marching towards what seems to be a very challenging and
inspiring meeting between traditions of Mongolia, new ESD approaches, advanced and consistent examples of Mongolian ESD-programme, substantial participation from (not least Sweden but also the rest of) the international ESD scene. Well! Will you be here?
My role is very much in the marginal! But still I want to pull my straw to the stack and try to mobilize the network. So I challenge you people!
Support the initiative in person!
See to that you are here! Presenting, listening and facilitating experience sharing!
Support the initiative in kind!
See to that you advert this Conference in your networks and fora! Make it known! Now!
Support the initiative in monetary terms!
Well we all know that arranging Conferences is not free of charge. So I suppose the Organizing Committee will be pleased! Support the initiative by lending them some of your statues! Your Logos should be on the programme, on the proceedings! Of course!
As I said- I am not the core in this. BUT I think that the initiative is worth all possible support. So I send you this and I invite you to connect to my friend at the Mongolian State University for Education- Mrs Bolortunga or Tunga as we say! Please connect to her about your possibilities for support.
And see you here at THE ESD event this year! For you who wants to know more about this fascinating country- mail me! I will convince you to come here! Best regards and thanks -- Tomas Hertzman Invitation to Conference in Ulan-Baataar.pdf

Not only are they socially highly relevant regarding sustainable deve- lopment discourses, but also and particularly they are close to stu- dents’ interests and needs and can help to open up science to indivi- dually relevant questions, especially also for girls.
