Organized by the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee in cooperation with the UNESCO Secretariat, the Ninth International Forum of NGOs in Official Partnership with UNESCO will be held in Tunis (Tunisia), on 26 and 27 September 2018, hosted by the Arab institute for Human Rights.
The theme chosen for this edition - “Another Perspective on Migration” - joins UNESCO’s objectives on migration and its action to “transforming our world through sustainable development”. The purpose of this Forum is to discuss human mobility, its dynamics and impact to building a lasting peace and ensuring a sustainable development of our planet.
Migration flows and their effects will be debated under the eye of NGOs, through three main panels focusing on the following subjects:
• Migrants as actors of development
• Education and resilience
• Media and information management of migration
Together with some imminent experts, participants are also expected to create initiatives and design a pilot project for future collaboration among NGOs.
This Forum will gather NGOs in official partnership with UNESCO, but is also open to the participation of other institutions and representatives of Member States, subject to prior registration on the website of the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee (www.ong-unesco.org).
The provisional programme, a concept note, practical information and other working documents are available on this site and that of the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee (www.ong-unesco.org).
