Rationale under the APEC projects:

 APEC Lesson Study Projects (since 2006) proposed by Thailand and Japan have established APEC Lesson Study Network and held the meetings for project-planning in Tokyo every February and for reporting in Thailand every September, annually. The Project approved as APEC HRD 03-2015a on the topic of Energy Efficiency will be extended until the year 2017. Educational Ministerial Meeting (2016) on APEC HRD emphasized the importance of SDGs by UNESCO in terms of implementing in particular SDG 4 on education. In this context, in the year 2017, the conference will be focused on followings:
1) Planning the development of the textbooks for Energy Efficiency by cross-border lesson study
2) For the development of the textbooks, participants will learn about SDGs, STEM education, reform issues in education and lesson study addition to the year 2016 project meetings
 In relation to these topics, the project meetings will provide the necessary opportunities to learn from the UNESCO-MGIEP and SEAMEO for APEC economies’ welfare. On this demands, the Tokyo meeting on February, 2017, is co-hosted by UNESCO(MGIEP) and set the back to back meeting with SEAMEO Secretariat.

  On the establishment of ASEAN community, SEAMEO proposed seven priority areas for ASEAN educational reform until the year 2035, and began several projects for the first 5 years of reform. Some of the participating institutions on APEC Lesson Study Projects adopted the experience of APEC project and contributed to the SEAMEO Projects. This symposium will be held as the back to back meeting on APEC-Tsukuba and UNESCO(MGIEP) International Conference. The participants will learn the educational reforms of ASEAN for contributing to the other international organizations such as UNESCO and APEC.
