Innovation Network Education for Sustainable Development (InnoNet BNE)
The Innovation Network Education for Sustainable Development (InnoNet BNE) started its work in 2012. It is a regional network of actors from education, civil society, business and local authorities that are committed to promoting Education for Sustainable Development. The aim of the network is to teach children, young people and adults the ability to think and act sustainably. This puts people in a position to make decisions for the future and to assess how their own actions will affect future generations or life in other regions of the world. In addition to the University of Erfurt, the network includes the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt and the city of Erfurt, the Arbeitsgruppe Nachhaltigkeit e.V., the TheoPrax Foundation in Thuringia (at TIAW e.V.), the Sustainability Centre Thuringia, the NOW project and the Plattform e.V. (an institute at the UAS Erfurt). From September 2012 to August 2013 InnoNet was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In 2018 the innovation network was also awarded a prize by the German Council for Sustainable Development. The award is linked to the award of the "Project Sustainability" signet, which the network has been using ever since to communicate its success.
