Join the third discussion of the Post2015 Global Consultation on Education
Within the World We Want 2015 framework, UNICEF and UNESCO have launched a global online consultation in December 2012 to ensure that education is effectively addressed as a priority in the post 2015 development agenda.
The consultation aims to bring together youth, civil society, NGOs, academia, governments and the private sector to contribute their experiences and ideas on how to reach better, wider and more equitable access to quality education around the globe. Covering four thematic e-discussions, this global online conversation will run until the end of February 2013.
The Discussion Three on Global Citizenship, Jobs and Skills starts today, 23 January and we invite you to participate.
Globalization has transformed the world into a global village. There are greater connections between people worldwide and pandemics, conflict, climate change, migration, economic crisis and their impacts assume global dimensions. Education for global citizenship is quality and relevant education that transcends immediate local interests to provide us with a profound understanding of the connections between socio-economic and political structures, processes and people nationally, regionally and globally.
The questions under scrutiny are:
- Policies, interventions and measures that have been successful in imparting relevant and adequate skills development
- Major challenges caused due to lack of skills training for young women and men and inadequate education for global citizenship
- Recommendations for making a lasting and transformative impact in relation to education for global citizenship.

You are encouraged to post your ideas and thoughts as an individual or a group and share the voices of the people, organizations or communities you represent.
