What is the role of education and knowledge in shaping the society we want, and what is the role of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in supporting this process?
Drawing on specific experiences from UNESCO’s Collective Consultation of NGOs on Education 2030 (CCNGO), an independent report was published that aims to provide inputs from civil society’s perspective to UNESCO’s Futures of Education Initiative, an initiative which strives to rethink education and shape the future.
Through its membership in CCNGO and its mandate in the corresponding Coordination Group, DVV International actively contributed to this report.
The CCGNO is UNESCO’s long-standing mechanism for dialogue, reflection and partnership with NGOs working in the field of education. Founded in 1984, the CCNGO is a network of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) committed to ensuring that the voice of the community is strengthened and considered in diverse decision-making arenas. Its membership of some 300 local, national regional and international organisations from all regions of the world provides a global overview and offers, through its Coordination Group, a valuable contribution to the Futures’ Initiative.
