The conference seeks to explore ways and means by which education for global citizenship can become a key element of formal, informal, and non-formal curricula.

Stakeholders of the conference commit to an education that will enable people to actively contribute to political and developmental processes in a complex, interlinked and diverse global society both within and beyond their borders. This education will include, but not be limited to: legal and political status; role, rights and responsibilities as a member of a community; general forms of behavior including social, moral and ethical dimensions; the global impact of actions; the value of diversity; use of economic and environmental resources; political and social systems; multilingual competence; and the use of information and communication technologies.
