Forum on Inclusion and Equity in Education – UNESCO

How can we advance policies and practices that ensure inclusion and equity in education? What actions have governments taken to translate principles into practices to ensure inclusive learning environments? What are the recommendations that could foster inclusion in education?

These are key questions of the International Forum on Inclusion and Equity in Education, organized by UNESCO, that is taking place in Cali, Colombia, until next Friday. Click here to visit the website

"The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its focus on leaving no one behind, provides a unique opportunity to build more inclusive, just and fair societies. There remains challenges to ensure that all people irrespective of sex, age, race or ethnicity, and persons with disabilities, migrants, indigenous peoples, children and youth, especially those in vulnerable situations have access to life-long learning opportunities. Although efforts have been made to promote quality education for all, reality does not show significant transformation in educational systems nor policies."

"The Forum will provide a platform for debate and a place to share innovative policies, programmes and practices to advance inclusion and equity in education."

How policies and practices can be improved to promote inclusion and give all children a head start is a leading question that will also be discussed at the conference Equality and Inclusion, featuring the ISOTIS project. Enroll here:
