The WEF 2015 will provide multiple spaces for discussion and interaction through a combination of plenary and parallel group sessions, thematic debates and side events on issues related to the post-2015 education agenda and its implementation. The first day will include the opening ceremony and stock take of the EFA progress, the second will focus on the post-2015 education agenda and the third on how this agenda will be implemented. In all sessions, time for introductory presentations will be limited, to maximise time for debate.
