The Workshop aims at fostering joint reflections and identifying the most pertinent actions needed in order to (i) put in practice the ‘Geneva Milestone’ recommendations, (ii) elaborate a follow-up strategy that reflects the needs and perspectives of both UNESCO and its network of Chairs, and (iii) promote stronger collaborations with, and ownership of, the latter on the whole follow-up process.

The Workshop will also be the occasion to (iv) build the UNESCO Chairs’ capacities on how to communicate science and all activities linked to the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda to the general public / international organizations / Members States, via the development of a communication and knowledge-sharing platform or other communication tools.
