Convened by UNESCO and the Asia-Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID), the Conference explored the linkages among higher education, participatory development and sustainable development.

"Imagine a world in which all individuals are recognized as productive, educated citizens and as potential agents of change. Imagine a world in which universities embody democratic values, make strong connections between head, heart and hands, and recognize that their institutional goals go beyond the generation of wealth and the advancement of self-recognition."
