Building peace in the minds of men and women

2nd UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship Education (GCED)

Building Peaceful and Sustainable Societies -
Preparing for Post-2015

The Second UNESCO Global Forum on GCED took place in Paris on 28-30 January 2015 at UNESCO Headquarters.
The two main objectives of the 2nd Forum were to consider GCED in the context of the post-2015 education agenda including consideration of the emerging Framework of Action Post-2015, and the role of GCED for peace. 
The Second Forum took place at a very strategic time, during the UNESCO regional consultations on EFA and post-2015 and before the Global Education Forum (WEF) in May 2015 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. Thus, the Forum offered a unique opportunity to take stock of the outcomes of the regional consultations and make recommendations for the WEF.
In particular, the Forum considered current trends and future needs in the area of GCED and will sought to identify policy priorities and strategies for the operationalization of GCED and provide inputs to the Framework for Action on Education post-2015.
