    ISESCO and Côte d’Ivoire discuss prospects for cooperation

    20 November 2019

    Today in Paris, the Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, met with Ms. Kandia Camara, Minister of National Education, Technical Education and Vocational Training of Côte d’Ivoire, on the sidelines of the 40th UNESCO General Conference.

    During this meeting, Dr. AlMalik reviewed ISESCO’s new vision, through which it aspires to become a beacon of global outreach, while focusing on issues of sustainable development, combating poverty, countering extremism and hate speech, empowering youth and women, supporting civil society, protecting children, educating refugees and displaced persons, and conserving heritage. The new vision also targets the new roles of artificial intelligence and the future models of education.

    In this regard, ISESCO Director General revealed that, in the forthcoming period, the Organization would launch a number of special activities and programs, which will have a major positive impact, while stressing that this new strategy responds to Member States’ requests relevant to the implementation of programmes according to their respective needs.

    This meeting further discussed ways to develop ISESCO’s Regional Center for Education on the Culture of Peace (CRECP), in Yamoussoukro, which was established in 2016 to become a source of civilizational impact and reflect the spirit of cooperation between the Organization and Côte d’Ivoire. ISESCO will also support the establishment of a Master’s degree programme on Education for Peace and Culture.

    Ms. Camara praised ISESCO’s new vision and reaffirmed her country’s commitment to develop cooperation with the Organization in the coming period, especially in the fields of education and culture through programs and projects to be coordinated for implementation in Côte d’Ivoire.
