This is your platform to continue the Forum discussion, find useful resources and information about tertiary education and share successful education projects from your country.

On 7-8 July 2008, 129 Ministers of Education, senior education bureaucrats and policy advisors from 35 countries gathered at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France, to participate a working conference on the topic of 'Success and Sustainability: Tertiary Education's Global Challenge'.

Microsoft and UNESCO collaborated to facilitate discussion about tertiary education's role in securing sustainable economic success and challenges and barriers in providing quality education.

The discussion doesn't stop with the event! Let's continue the conversation and use this blog to share successful models for improving education and fostering local innovation.

Two young students from the UK accompanied the 2 day Forum and captured the outcomes by blogging the event live. Featuring already plenty of information and resources, which have been referred to during the Forum, the blog will continue to transform into an interactive resource guide over the next few weeks, providing you a platform to:
