This teacher consultation is organized by Education International in collaboration with UNESCO’s Sections on Teacher Development and for Global Citizenship and Peace Education and the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 (TTF). The objective of the event is to gather the views and perspectives of teachers on how to update the 1974 Recommendation.
The 1974 Recommendation is a normative instrument which aims to support the design and implementation of effective educational policies and programmes that contribute to the building of a just, sustainable, healthy and peaceful society.
Given the multitude of contemporary threats to global peace and human survival - such as climate change, pandemics, infectious diseases, the spread of violent and hateful ideologies, conspiracy theories, persistent inequalities, discrimination and xenophobia – the UNESCO is updating the 1974 Recommendation to better reflect the complexity of today’s global landscape and ensure the instrument is fit for purpose in our current context.

Please note that there will be simultaneous interpretation in English, Spanish and French.
