The objective of this book was to gather research and interventions in life designing, career counseling and education from international scholars, that contribute to sustainable development and decent work. The contributors were asked to answer the following question: How can career and life design interventions contribute to a fair and sustainable development and to the implementation of decent work all over the world ?
On the basis of this question, the purpose of the book was to provide a large overview of current research in the field of Interventions for Life and Career Design (ILCD) in Northern and Southern countries, pinpointing the importance of both world broad view and local contexts to build accurate ILCD. Another objective was that this book allows identifying perspectives that could be developed in this field in order to contribute more to increase responsibility of individuals, groups and communities to design their life and their individual and collective future. The last aim was to develop and to strengthen an international community of research in the field of ILCD connected with the UNESCO strategies.This book gathers 17 contributions of international scholars of the field of career counseling and guidance, offering innovative perspectives related to theoretical frameworks and career counseling practices.
