The Review Forum for the UNESCO Global Action Program (GAP) on ESD:
Usage and Innovation, and
The Third UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship Education (GCED): the Role of Teachers

execution since its dispatch in November 2014 and talk about the path forward for the next years of GAP usage. The Review Forum will likewise investigate rising ESD issues, patterns and thoughts, and highlight creative methodologies.
To encourage the usage of the GAP at the worldwide level and bolster the scaling up of ESD activities, UNESCO has set up five Partner Networks of around 80 key ESD partners (‘Key Partners’). There is one Partner Network for each of the five Priority Action Areas of the GAP:
i. propelling arrangement;
ii. changing learning and preparing situations;
iii. building limits of teachers and mentors;
iv. engaging and preparing youth;
v. quickening manageable arrangements at neighborhood level.
The Key Partners will shape the center of the members of the Review Forum and UNESCO will set up a GAP advance report as contribution for the Review Forum.
The Third UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship Education will draw on the foundational
work of the two GCED held in Bangkok, Thailand (December 2013) and in Paris, France (January 2015), which, at every Forum, assembled more than 200 universal members to examine patterns and trade great practices in GCED.
The Week will likewise give a chance to showcase Canadian development and authority in the territories of ESD and GCED.
