CCIVS plays a positive role in supporting organisations to promote Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) with volunteers and local communities. CCIVS carries on campaigns that are linked to the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 - 2014) which aim to integrate sustainable development into education and learning throughout the world. The network believes in the need of stimulating reflection and deeper understanding of sustainable development issues in the civil society. Many CCIVS organisations have developed activities that support these learning processes and run special projects focusing on sustainable development issues. As results of the campaigns, several publications have been produced.
