Representatives of the Permanent Delegations to UNESCO are invited to participate in a series of meetings between the Assistant Director-Generals (ADGs) and Member States about the Organization's Strategic Transformation and reflection on its medium-term strategy for 2022-2029.
These series of meetings are designed to allow Member States to engage with each Programme ADG in a reflection on the major trends, opportunities and challenges that are likely to have an impact on the Organization's work and future programmes in each of its fields of competence, and help chart the future strategic orientations for the years ahead. These meetings will provide a valuable basis for the next transversal and interdisciplinary reflections which will take place in the fall of 2019.
