57th Annual General MeetingMontréal, May 2017

Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship: What are UNESCO and its networks’ roles?

The achievement of international climate change objectives calls for efforts to raise awareness, change behaviour and mindsets, and mobilize a number of actors (governments, civil society, private sector). The 57th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) will therefore be an occasion to synthesize the views of experts, from a wide range of disciplines, in order to improve our understanding of the environmental, cultural, social and ethical challenges facing us, with a particular emphasis on input from young people and Indigenous knowledge. The AGM will also be an opportunity for CCUNESCO to identify priority lines of action in order to elicit contributions from its members and networks concerning these issues, in the aim to create more sustainable societies.

This event is by-invitation only. Should you have any question, please contact us at: ccunesco@unesco.ca
