Working Paper – Report on First NGAP Symposium Conclusions
Model Council Working Paper Template
Submitted Working Papers for Model Council Session
ICAO has a 36 State permanent governing Council which meets regularly to debate and agree on the best courses of action regarding international civil aviation Standards and Recommended Practices.
The Council meets in a special chamber in ICAO which is one of the very few venues in the country which features simultaneous translation and other diplomatic trappings befitting our purpose and role.
As part of the 70th anniversary of the Chicago Convention and in parallel to the second ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals Symposium this December, the first-ever ‘Model Council’ will be conducted.
The Model Council participants will discuss actions required to support and promote NGAP priorities, locally, regionally and globally, including all aspects of the projected shortages for skilled aviation workers and leaders and related challenges in terms of global and regional personnel training capacity, personnel retention, etc.
The Model Council is intended to engage selected university students and young professionals in considering and developing strategies to support access in their States/regions for training and other resources sufficient enough to permit them to be eligible for aviation professions.
The chosen candidates will be encouraged to consider how this could be accomplished unilaterally, cooperatively, and in partnership with ICAO and other international organizations. They will also be encouraged to consider not only matters relating to attracting NGAPs to available positions, but also their retention and career development over the longer-term.
