CONGO Committee on Education

The CONGO Committee on Education is a substantive committee of CONGO - the Conference Of Non-Governmental Organizations in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations [1]. The Committee has made a commitment to supporting the United Nations Decade on Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) as well as related decades, and is developing a network of web sites to this end. The information architecture of the networks is based on properties and principles of a networked information economy, and on a prototype open source and Creative Commons framework for organizational domains, with the goal of gathering, compiling and sharing a vast collective wealth of knowledge - and building the foundations of a Common Wealth, co-created in a rapidly-evolving intelligent networked universe in which abundance is not constrained by the laws of conservation of mass and energy.
