The meeting will serve to formally establish the five Partner Networks of the Global Action Programme on ESD (GAP); discuss and elaborate an initial workplan for each Partner Network, including key implementation milestones; and define within each Partner Network responsibilities, coordination and working methods.

UNESCO will establish five Partner Networks, one for each of the five Priority Action Areas of the GAP: policy support, whole-institution approaches, educators, youth, local communities. GAP Partner Networks are one of the main implementation mechanisms of the GAP. The Networks will create synergies for the activities of their members and catalyse actions by other stakeholders.
