The very beginning

Where it all started

The Global Knowledge for Development Conference started on April 3, 2017, with opening remarks by high-level representatives of the United Nations, the International Labour Organization, the International Atomic Energy Agency, Permanent Representatives to the UN from the United Arab Emirates and Austria, and a knowledge ecologist who spoke on behalf of Knowledge Management Austria (KMA) and KM4Dev Community.

The second day of the K4D Conference featured more presentations, and comprised a dialogue on the way forward that was designed as a World Café, which was highly interactive, dynamic and greatly appreciated by participants.  Watch the recording of the live-sreaming (from Periscope/Twitter) here.

To close the Conference, a representative of George Washington University delivered a presentation on K4D Vision 2030 at the nexus of theory, policy, practices and politics. Cesar Robles then presented the results of the social reporting done for this conference, highlighting that twitter hashtag reach 160,000 accounts, just on the second day of the event. And last, Andreas Brander and Petru Dumitriu officially closed the Conference.
