Vanishing Responsibility
SFI Sustainable Future Instructions

Vanishing Responsibility

There is a decoupling of natural processes and


human impacts and effects.

A spatial and temporal separation of those who


cause the effects and those who are affected by
these.
The relationship between individual acting and
its subsequent effects cannot be experienced
any longer directly, whereby responsibility
fades away.
Which are the criteria for ESF
in Decision-Making Products?
ACTIVE RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS REGIONAL AND GLOBAL ISSUES

CHALLENGE TO STRIVE FOR SOLIDARITY: NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

READINESS TO COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT CULTURES

EVOKE AWARENESS ON BEING DEPENDENT ON 'NEW THINKING'

DESD
German-Japanese Cooperation: DESD-Project
Educators of Germany and Japan will work together, following UNESCO’s framework of the Decade of Education for
Sustainable Development 2005 -2014, initiated by the Japanese Government in Johannesburg, (WSSD, 2002)
The “Germany-Year in Japan 2005/2006” is an additional opportunity to start a viable cooperation among German and
Japanese teachers and students to find strategies of how to implement the principle of Sustainability in education.

In order to cope with global changes (syndromes) and the disadvantages of globalization everyone has to accept and
practice responsibility.

Germany and Japan face various economic, environmental and social problems (e.g. demographic ones) which are
alike, therefore cooperating may be worthwhile. The most promising strategy in doing so will be based on Education
for a Sustainable Future.
