Opening ceremony of UNESCO General Conference
Several Heads of State and some 150 ministers and delegates from all 195 UNESCO Member States will gather in Paris over the next 15 days for the Organization’s General Conference. This 37th session will shape the Organization’s strategy and direction for the next eight years. The Conference is also expected to confirm another four-year term for Irina Bokova as Director-General. She was nominated for a second term by UNESCO’s Executive Board last month.
Heads of State or Government present at the Leaders’ Forum
The 37th session of the General Conference will feature a new edition of the Leaders’ Forum on 6 November 2013. This forward-looking policy dialogue involves Heads of State and/or Government as well as representatives of Member States at ministerial level to address issues of strategic, global and interdisciplinary interest with a view to providing general orientations for the future work of the broader UNESCO community.
