UNESCO ASPnet and the International Centre for the UNESCO ASPNET (ICUA) will hold a 2-day Student Forum in December 2021. The forum will be a platform for exchange of ideas around GCED and ESD, and particularly sharing experiences and showcasing examples of innovative actions being taken by young people with the ASPnet network and other youth networks around GCED and ESD, for people and the planet.
The Global Forum will be preceded by regional workshops in September 2021. The Student Forum and regional workshops seek to empower participants to widen, deepen and strengthen their engagement and actions to bring about more just, peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies through connecting "change maker" young people from youth networks including UNESCO Climate Action Network (YoU-CAN).
The Student Forum will provide opportunities for select ASPnet students to develop their understanding and skills and for sharing inspiring experiences and good practices on how and what actions to take to bring about more just, peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies, and how formal education can foster and support students to do so.
