The Incheon Declaration: from adoption to action

In the follow up to the adoption of the Incheon Declaration, the vision for education to 2030, at the World Education Forum, on 21 May and in the lead up to the Sustainable Development Goals that will be ratified at the United Nations in September, UNESCO continues its work.

Hand in hand with governments all over the world, non-governmental organizations and youth groups UNESCO is supporting the provision of inclusive, equitable, quality education and life-long learning opportunities for all.   

Last week UNESCO led the world in adopting the Incheon Declaration.

Taking adoption to action the South East Asia Centre of Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Development (SEA CLLSD) will discuss on 25-27 May, programmes, projects and activities of UNESCO education-related Category 2 Centres in light of the Incheon Declaration during the 4th Biennial Meeting of UNESCO education-related Category 2 Centres, hosted by SEA CLLSD in Manila, Philippines.

The meeting will gather stakeholders, representatives from various UNESCO Category 2 Centres, UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning, government officials and distinguished guests from all over the world involved in the education sector. They will be identifying opportunities for collaborative projects among UNESCO institutes, Regional Bureaus and Centres, as well as partnerships with the private and public sectors.
