The application form for submission of proposals can be accessed on the HLPF website at: https://goo.gl/forms/mwurBMamNwFEM0bY2. Only submissions in English will be considered.

The selection of the courses will be based on their merit, relevance to the HLPF theme and SDGs under review in 2019 (as indicated above), expertise of the organizers, and willingness to produce the desired output. There is no fee for submission or approval of proposed courses.
