Two events linked to recent Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Reports on inclusion and education will focus on early childhood education and care (ECEC).
The first event, entitled ‘Right from the start: Ensuring quality and inclusive early childhood care and education for everyone’, will take place on 8 July. It will focus on progress towards inclusive ECEC around the world and will explore strategies and policy tools to improve inclusion. Speakers will include representatives from education ministries in Canada and Liberia, academics and ECEC specialists.
On 13 July, the second event will examine three recent ECEC publications:
- Right from the Start: Build inclusive societies through inclusive early childhood, a new policy paper which builds on the findings of the 2020 GEM Report;
- UNICEF’s Early Childhood Education Accelerator Analysis and Planning Toolkit, which helps to strengthen inclusion in education planning;
- Toolkit for inclusive early childhood education and care, the European Union’s toolkit to help Member States develop high quality, inclusive ECEC.
Hosted by GEM and UNICEF, speakers will include representatives from government departments in Bulgaria and Ireland. For more details, visit the GEM Regional Report events page.
