Conceived as a major, internationally focused gathering, the ANGEL Conference 2023 aims to bring together interested parties from all backgrounds for two exciting days of sessions showcasing and discussing research, projects, and new developments connected to Global Education and Learning or Global Citizenship Education, and other related fields
such as Development Education, Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainable Development, Education for Peace, and Intercultural Education.

The Conference, to be held within UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on the 19th and 20th of June, carries the title Global Education & Learning for a Just, Peaceful & Sustainable World, and will include a mixture of inspirational keynote presentations, academic papers and presentations from empirical research, debates on key issues and opportunities for meetings of specialist Journal boards, early career researchers, NGO practitioners and policymakers. A wealth of parallel sessions will cover themes that emerge amongst submitted proposals, e.g. school-based education, further and higher education, adult education and informal learning. All plenary sessions will include discussions on how to take forward the themes addressed by the speakers in developing and implementing policies, informing research, and helping to improve the quality of educational practice.
