Begins 27 August in the wings of the 18th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers (18CCEM).

The full programme and list of speakers for the Stakeholders’ Forum at the 18th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers Meeting later this month is now available on the 18CCEM Stakeholders’ Forum website.

Ms. Amina J Mohammed, recently appointed by United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, as his Special Adviser on Post-2015 Development Planning, will give the keynote address on the Stakeholders’ Forum theme: ‘Education in the Commonwealth: Making it happen’.

On the last day of the Stakeholders’ Forum a Statement is presented to Education Ministers. The aim of the Statement is to give a voice to stakeholders and enable them to represent their views and recommendations to Ministers. A public consultation is currently taking place: please read and comment on the Statement. The consultation will close at midnight (UK time) on 5 August 2012.

The 18CCEM Stakeholders’ Forum is a parallel event supporting the 18th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers alongside the Teachers’ Forum, Post-Secondary and Higher Education Leaders’ Forum and Youth Forum. It will bring together education representatives from business, government, academia, civil society, and the development and donor communities to discuss and debate practical measures to transform education delivery around the Commonwealth.

This is a unique opportunity to interact with a variety of education specialists from across the Commonwealth. There are still spaces available: if you are interested in attending please register here.

The 18CCEM Stakeholders’ Forum is organised by the Commonwealth Foundation in collaboration with the Government of Mauritius and the Commonwealth Secretariat, in partnership with Link Community Development and Nexus Strategic Partnerships Limited.
