The Review Meeting for Draft Development and the Preparatory Meeting for Piloting was held in Geneva, Switzerland on 14-15 August 2017. National experts from each of the four beneficiary countries –the Kingdom of Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia and Uganda – and staffs from UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE) and Asia-Pacific Centre of International Understanding (APCEIU) gathered for the meeting.

At the beginning of the meeting, Dr. Utak Chung, Director of APCEIU, mentioned that “through the devotion and endeavors made by the four countries and IBE, our project could bear fruits. The APCEIU will continue to vigorously support mainstreaming GCED in the four countries.” 
In response, Dr. Mmantsetsa Marope, Director of IBE, said, “we are here together to learn from the experience and build a global public good. Through this project, we foresee the participating countries to become ‘best practice countries’ of GCED.”

During the two-day meeting, delegates of the four countries presented the progress achieved in process of developing draft curricula. Based on the country-specific contexts and demands, the outcomes of the curricula vary by country: 
- Cambodia: GCED-integrated national curricula in history and moral-civic subjects
- Colombia: GCED teachers’ guidelines
- Mongolia: GCED manual for teachers
- Uganda: GCED teaching and learning materials

In the session of designing pilot programmes, IBE introduced key guiding principles and strategies of piloting and monitoring processes. Especially, there was a set of practical activities provided by IBE so that the participants were able to enhance their understanding about piloting processes and help them refine their piloting plans. With the draft curricula developed, each country plans to implement their own pilot in the 2nd half of the year.
