EduWeeK : 29-30 JUNE 2016
Education is the foundation for a country’s sustainable development in its economic, social and environmental context. It is also a founding element of the right to a decent life and to individual development and a key factor for reducing poverty and inequalities.
The theme for EduWeek for 2016 is ‘Sustainable Development in Education’. This theme has been chosen to reflect EduWeek’s support of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals and UNESCO’s Global Action Plan (GAP), which focuses heavily on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Education for Sustainable Development consequently promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way. NAPTOSA along with other contributors at EduWeek, intends to play a key role in promoting this change.
For educators, attending EduWeek offers the opportunity to:
- Improve their educational knowledge by choosing from over 200 hours of leading–edge and free practical training delivered by experts from across Africa.
- Meet implementers who will inspire them through hands on learning.
- Be at the forefront of Africa’s transformation by networking with leaders, strategic thinkers and entrepreneurs.
- An opportunity to learn about the latest developments, case studies and trends from renowned industry leaders as well as local education professionals with a holistic view on how to improve African education.
