The Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, is traveling to Brussels on 24 and 25 January on the occasion of the first European Education Summit, organized by the European Commission.
Ms Azoulay will address education ministers and stakeholders at the opening session of the Summit, which aims to lay the foundations for a European Educational Area by 2015 with a particular focus on innovation, inclusion and values-based education.
In her address, the Director-General will highlight the synergies between Europe’s ambitions regarding education and Sustainable Development Goal Four for inclusive quality education and lifelong learning adopted by the United Nations in late 2015, for which UNESCO is the lead UN Agency.
The creation of a European Educational Area was approved at the meeting of European heads of state or government in Gothenburg (Sweden) in November last year.
During her first visit to Brussels as Director-General of UNESCO, Ms Azoulay will hold bilateral meetings with several European Commissioners, notably Ms Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission.
