Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, Director-General of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), and his accompanying delegation will participate in “Transforming Education Pre-Summit,” on 28-30 June, at UNESCO headquarters, in Paris, to promote the debate on transforming education and develop the initial contents of the Transforming Education Summit, due to be held next September, at the United Nations headquarters, in New York, during the 77th Session of the General Assembly.
Transforming Education Pre‐Summit will be organized in Paris on 28‐30 June 2022. A Global Engagement Day on 28 June will include technical meetings on Thematic Action Tracks and engagements with key stakeholders. The high‐level segment consists of Ministerial and Stakeholder engagement to ensure greater momentum for the Summit in September.
The overall objective of the Pre‐Summit consists of mobilizing political leaders, promoting action, finding solutions and fostering solidarity to transform education in order to assess the efforts geared towards overcoming the learning losses due to the Covid-19 pandemic, redesigning the educational systems for today and tomorrow, and revitalize national and global efforts to achieve the fourth Sustainable Development Goal.
On the sidelines of this participation, Dr. AlMalik will hold a series of meetings with the heads of delegation of ICESCO Member States participating in the Pre-Summit to develop a practical vision and reach a consensus on educational issues to be presented as a proposal for discussion in the Transforming Education Summit, next September, and explore the initiatives that can be launched at the Summit to be part of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education.
