Global Action Programme (GAP) Key Partners will come together for the third Key partner meeting to discuss the draft position paper on the post-GAP period and provide feedback and ideas for further revision.

The current framework of the GAP will end in 2019 and a decision on the post-GAP period will soon have to be made by UNESCO Member States. To that effect, the UNESCO Secretariat is launching global consultation processes to reflect on the post-GAP period and on the future direction of Education for Sustainalbe Development (ESD).

For this purpose, UNESCO has drafted a position paper on the future of ESD through a series of experts’ meetings as well as a desk review of related literature and results of the mid-term GAP implementation.

The meeting will also provide an opportunity to plan the work of the Partner Networks until 2019.
