1st Forum on Green Economy Learning

The 2018 Forum builds on the momentum created by the 1st Global Forum on Green Economy Learning organized by PAGE in collaboration with GGKP, the OECD, and the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training in December 2015. More than 100 individuals from over 60 institutions came together to discuss global and national approaches to green economy learning, and to identify opportunities to exchange knowledge and collaborate with the goal of up-scaling green economy learning. The 1st Forum achieved three main results. First, it extended knowledge and experience sharing on green economy education and training beyond existing networks and initiatives. Second, it laid the groundwork for the initiation of a global green economy learning network. Third, the Forum published the ‘Paris Summary Statement on Learning for an Inclusive Green Economy’. The Statement represents the essential ideas and principles discussed at the Forum, providing a reference point for decision-makers, learning institutions and professionals to refer to and apply in their work.
