Inclusive Education

Regional Conference for Europe and North America

inclusive_education_Riga.jpg The Regional Preparatory Conference for the 48th session of the International Conference on Education for Europe and the North American Region was held in Riga, Latvia, on 24-26 February 2008. The topic of the conference was “Inclusive Education: from Policy Dialogue to Collaborative Action”.

Education that is inclusive takes into account the learning needs of all children, youth and adults, especially those who are vulnerable to marginalization and exclusion. This is a crucial aspect of UNESCO’s EFA campaign. The conference in Riga included expert and country presentations, two roundtable discussions with representatives from the Ministries of Education of the European and North American region on inclusive education policies and practices, and four simultaneous workshops on “Inclusive Education: Conceptual and Practical Issues”. UNESCO-UNEVOC hosted one of the workshops on ‘Different Learner Needs and Learning Styles and How to Address them Meaningfully’. The workshop was moderated by Rupert Maclean, Director of UNESCO-UNEVOC. The presenters at the workshop were Prof. Roger Slee(Institute of Education, University of London), Ritva Jarvinen (National Board of Education, Finland) and Prof. Zenta Anspoka (Riga Teacher Training and Education Management Academy, Latvia).

The 48th Session of the International Conference on Education (ICE) on “Inclusive Education: the Way of the Future” will be held in Geneva in November 2008. The ICE is a major international forum for education policy dialogue among Ministers of Education and other stakeholders, such as researchers, practitioners, representatives of intergovernmental organizations and civil society.
