Profile

Fumiko Noguchi joined the ESD Programme at the UNU-IAS in April of 2019. Born in Tokyo, she received an undergraduate degree in international economics and finance from Tsuda University. After her first career experience in banking in Japan, she moved to Australia to obtain a Master’s degree in Environmental Education at Griffith University. Since then, she has lived, worked and studied in Japan and Australia. She completed her PhD in ESD at RMIT University. She has gained extensive experience in practice, policy advocacy, research, teaching and module development for ESD in the Asia-Pacific region for over twenty years. Throughout, she has consistently taken community-based approach and indigenous and local knowledge and learning. During the UNDESD (2004-2015), she acted as a programme coordinator for the Japan Council on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD-J). She is also a traditional knowledge holder who practices Aikido, with the rank of San-Dan (third-degree black belt).
