Public Sector & Politicians

Gerald Farthing

Deputy Minister, Education, Province of Manitoba

Gerald has been instrumental in embedding ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) across the K-12 curricula in Manitoba, and all that entails, from building partnerships with others, engaging local leaders and communities, to curriculum development and beyond. Manitoba is seen by ESD experts across the globe as a clear leader in this respect and many programs are now emulated elsewhere. Gerald also represents Canada on the UNECE steering committee on ESD and now chairs that committee.

If your children know anything about sustainable development, there’s a good chance Gerald and his team had a lot to do with that.
