One of the outcomes of a Strategic Planning Meeting, held in January 2019, was the decision to identify ‘working groups’ with board members encouraged to join a working group or to appoint people from their region to a working group . Four groups were proposed:

  1. Stakeholder Engagement
  2. Sustainability
  3. Capacity Building
  4. Communication

It was suggested that Youth Engagement be a fifth priority to be introduced in the future.

The Chairs of each working group form a Leadership Team and its membership also includes the members of the IBE Management Committee and the Executive Director.

The team meet regularly, either face to face or by video call, and are tasked with providing accountability for the implementation of the IBE Strategic Plan.
