Contribution to UNESCO's programmes IAPSS is actively involved in Slovenian activities in the framework of the International Year of Planet Earth. IAPSS participates in the meetings of the Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO and contributes to the implementation of its programmes. The IAPSS also cooperated with the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO in the organization of a Conference on the future of governance in the twenty-first century. SHS: since one of the priorities of SHS is to enhance policy-research linkages on social transformations, IAPSS should be accepted to enter into official relations with UNESCO. The areas of future cooperation could be: the Academic Conference 2009; participation of UNESCO partners in the IAPSS Politikon journal; IAPSS Four Seasons University and MOST Summer Schools. ED: since 2004, IAPSS has been a very dynamic organization. IAPSS has the potential to contribute to UNESCO’s work in higher education in cooperation with international student NGOs, in the framework of the UNESCO/NGO Collective Consultation on Higher Education. IAPSS could be invited to the Youth Forum organized prior to UNESCO’s General Conference, as a capacity-building opportunity offered to its representatives.
