It brings together heads of state, a significant number of African government Ministers of Education and Training (and ministers in charge of other sectors like youth, labour and SMEs), representatives of development cooperation agencies supporting education in Africa and practitioners and researchers. Representatives of civil society, youth, private sector and other stakeholders such as diaspora are also invited.

The theme of the ADEA 2017 Triennale is “Revitalizing education towards the 2030 Global Agenda and Africa’s Agenda 2063” and the sub-themes are:

  • Implementing education and lifelong learning for sustainable development;
  • Promoting science, mathematics and ICT; 
  • Implementing education for African cultural renaissance and pan-African ideals; and 
  • Building Peace and Global Citizenship through education.
