World Education Forum 2015

UNESCO, in close collaboration with other UN Agencies as co-conveners, will organize from 19-22 May 2015 the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF 2015) which will be hosted by the Republic of Korea, in the city of Incheon. The WEF’s outcome will be fully aligned to the education goal and targets of the global development agenda to be adopted at the UN High-Level Summit in September 2015, in order to have one single education agenda for 2015-2030. To achieve this consensus UNESCO is facilitating consultations at various levels and with the UN Secretariat. This also requires continued strong engagement and support from governments and other education partners to ensure that the final targets for education post-2015 are transformative, achievable and measurable. And so five major regional conferences will take place in the lead up to the WEF 2015. These five regional meetings will be attended by education ministers and high-level officials,  representatives from civil society organizations, UN agencies, development banks, the private sector, research institutions, and other stakeholders.
