Funding brief: The Sustainable Lifestyles and Education (SLE) Programme is a global multi-stakeholder initiative, with the goal to accelerate the shift towards more sustainable lifestyles and education. The programme was launched in November 2014, as a multi-stakeholder programme to promote sustainable lifestyles and education. It is being co-led by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan, the Government of Sweden, and WWF, with the support of a 22 member Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC). Furthermore, the SLE Programme currently has over 80 partners around the globe from all stakeholder groups.
There are currently six thematic and sectoral 10YFP programmes bringing together actors, expertise and resources to deliver SCP in an operational manner, on an increasing scale. They contribute to meeting the objectives, goals and functions of the 10YFP, responding to national and regional needs, priorities and circumstances.The 10YFP programmes focus on:
● Building synergies and cooperation, bringing together existing initiatives and partners, leveraging resources towards common objectives;
● Scaling up and replicating successful policies and best practices for SCP, responding to national and regional needs, priorities and circumstances;
● Generating and supporting new projects and activities on SCP in response to regional and national priorities and needs, as they emerge. The programmes build capacity to implement policies, voluntary instruments, management practices, information and awareness raising activities to promote the shift to SCP patterns.
They bring together existing initiatives and partnerships working in similar areas, highlighting good practices and success stories, building synergies and cooperation among stakeholders to leverage resources towards mutual objectives and minimize duplication of ongoing efforts.
