Hosted by the Global Student Forum, in partnership with the All-Africa Student Union 

Rationale 

The UNESCO World Higher Education Conference is a key moment for the global higher education community. As the representative voice of higher education students worldwide the Global Student Forum and its membership hold unprecedented stakes when it comes to the conference outcomes. 

The objective of this student consultation for the African region is to raise student’s awareness for WHEC 2022 and capture the inputs and demands from the international student movement. As experts in higher education policy and governance from Europe, Africa, North and Latin America, Asia, and the Pacific, the Global Student Forum and its regional student federations offer a unique first hand perspective paired with policy-led considerations contributing to the knowledge production in the run up to the conference.

Student representatives taking part in this consultation will together agree on a process to articulate a common student position and joint declaration in the months leading up to the World Higher Education Conference. By performing a SWOT analysis on each of the 10 conference themes, national unions featured in the event are contributing to an unprecedented policy writing process aimed at deliberating a vision for worldwide higher education in the coming decade from a student perspective.
