800 participants from around the world will gather for the occasion: policy-makers working in education and sustainable development, education practitioners, civil society, development community and private sector experts.

Call for Proposals

UNESCO is inviting interested stakeholders - policy makers, civil society actors, academics, practitioners, etc - to submit proposals for contributions to the conference.  These contributions may take a few different formats.  One option is to have a booth set up for the duration of the conference, to provide an interactive experience, quizzes and games, innovative technologies, or engaging participants in discussion. 

Interested parties also have the opportunity to apply to host a 60-minute workshop focusing on the practical implementation of ESD and provide concrete guidance for other stakeholders for their future actions - for example showcase replicable actions, pedagogical methodologies, innovative approaches, toolkits or networks.
