COP21 NGO actionday

Click here to read the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee's  Common Declaration 6 October 2015 on Climate Change co-signed by many NGOs, including WUCWO, in official partnership with UNESCO.

The Declaration is a result of a year-long work by a working group set up by the NGO-UNESCO Liaison committee as a result of the proposal made during the Conference of NGOS in 2014. The Working Group defined the topics to be addressed by this Declaration and then created an online consultation process to have a first round of feedback for the content of the Declaration. Following this an international event on the 6 October including 26 countries and 70 representatives came together to share their actions on Climate Change and also to co-construct the Declaration using a non-formal education technique, 'World Café' which allowed the whole group to give their inputs for the declaration.

In the framework of capacity building for science education, UNESCO is organizing the workshop on the global Microscience Experiments in Gabon from 16 to 19 September 2013.

During the whole week, more than 50 teachers in science will be trained as trainers and will have to do several experiments in chemistry.

In addition to this workshop, a dedicated exhibition will be held to celebrate the International Year of Water Cooperation. This exhibition is organized by "Deyrolles pour l’avenir" under the new framework agreement between UNESCO and Deyrolle. Teachers who attend this event will go back to their school with posters on water cycle to make aware students of primary and secondary level on the importance of water, its rarity, and its value.
