The meeting for Workshop Coordinators of the UNESCO World Conference on ESD will brief workshop coordinators on the preparation of the workshops, and to develop and agree on concrete proposals for linking workshop results with the Global Action Programme on ESD (GAP), as a follow up to the UN Decade of ESD.

The concurrent 34 workshops at the World Conference are expected to play a key role in mobilizing stakeholders for the implementation of the GAP. To this end, UNESCO invites workshop coordinators not only to share their view on the facilitation of the workshops, but also to discuss how workshops can contribute to scale up actions on ESD among various stakeholders. Members of the International Steering Group (ISG) for the World Conference are also invited to work together with the coordinators on workshop preparation and organization to ensure successful results.
