UNESCO/Student NGOs consultation

Seventeen organizations representing students across the globe met at UNESCO HQ in Paris, from 21 to 23 January 2009 at an official WCHE preparatory meeting.

Co-organized by the European Students’ Union, Education International and UNESCO, the meeting provided student organizations with an opportunity to discuss higher education and develop a common approach to the World Conference.

The Global Student Statement adopted at the end of the meeting reflects students’ perspective on the challenges to be met in the coming years and provides a set of messages for policy and decision makers to consider.
