Webinar: Towards a truly inclusive education system in Asia

Summary of the webinar

What could a reform strategy entail to guarantee access to education for people of all ages and to offer valuable educational opportunities for everyone, with the aim of establishing inclusive education systems? This involves posing questions to government policymakers regarding the development of a policy framework that not only encourages and supports learning opportunities and their availability but also promotes the restructuring and reimagining of the education system. It also takes into account the role of technology in expanding the right to education and harnessing its transformative potential.

To discuss these important questions, Nisai Group, UNESCO IITE and INQUIRER.net are holding a one-hour webinar on 11 September 2023 at 10:00 (Moscow time, GMT+3). Please scan the QR code to sign up for the webinar.
