3rd UNESCO Meeting of Partner Networks of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on ESD


The third meeting of the Partner Networks of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), will take place on 24-27 April at Peace University in San José, Costa Rica. The meeting will serve to consult with GAP Key Partners on the future direction of ESD beyond 2018.

The current framework of the GAP will end in 2019 and a decision on the post-GAP period will soon have to be made by UNESCO Member States. To that effect, the UNESCO Secretariat is launching global consultation processes to reflect on the post-GAP period and on the future direction of ESD.

For this purpose, UNESCO has drafted a position paper on the future of ESD through a series of experts’ meetings as well as a desk review of related literature and results of the mid-term GAP implementation.

GAP Key Partners will come together for the third key partner meeting to discuss the draft position paper and provide feedback and ideas for further revision. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to plan the work of the Partner Networks until 2019.

SWEDESD has been invited to the meeting as one of the co-chairs of the GAP Partner Networks Action Area 3.
