GrowZA is excited to contribute to the UNESCO campus programme in South Africa in the OCT - NOV round of workshops.
Since its creation UNESCO serves its purpose to support global access to education, in order to achieve its mandate to build peace through international cooperation in education, sciences and culture.
Owing to the knowledge of various speakers from UNESCO and the civil society, experts in their fields (technology, education, sciences, …), UNESCO Campuses want to face nowadays challenges with students from colleges and high schools through the format of a horizontal and open discussion.
The UNESCO Campuses are conference debates in which young people aged from 13 to 18, from schools all over the world, exchange views with UNESCO experts and personalities from civil society on major contemporary topics related to UNESCO's mandate.
In this round, the campuses will explore topics like biodiversity, ocean economies, and associated contemporary development issues.
Campus sessions for this round are:
Loss of biodiversity: and now, what do we do? | Thursday 10th of November at 10 am (Paris time GMT +1)
Education for All | Thursday 17th of November at 3pm (Paris time GMT +1)
Loss of biodiversity: and now, what do we do? | Tuesday 22nd of November at 2 pm (Paris time GMT +1)
We look forward to engaging with our global development colleagues.
