Immigration and good quality education
The International GAP Seminar, with input from recognized experts and interactive discussions among the participants, offers a learning space to explore, learn more and elaborate on how schools and teacher education institutions can handle immigration and migration from the perspective of Human Rights and Quality Education.
We welcome you to participate in the Palermo Seminar, which will be enjoyable, inspiring and will address this key issue, crucial to the development of education and training, to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all.
We are very pleased that we have Professor Leon Tikly from the University of Bristol/UK and UNESCO Chair Charles Hopkins from York University in Toronto/Canada as distinguished international experts for good quality education, Diversity and ESD with us at the seminar. They will share their wide expertise in two keynotes and in their active participation in discussions during the seminar. Dr. Susanne Müller-Using, LTN EC-member and researcher at Osnabrück University will contribute regarding her expertise on good quality education with a keynote on Human Rights Education skills for teachers in multicultural settings.
Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) allows every human being to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future. ESD means including key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning. The United Nations has adopted the UNESCO Roadmap for implementing the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development.
The GAP has two objectives:
* to reorient education and learning so that everyone has the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that empower them to contribute to sustainable development – and make a difference;
* to strengthen education and learning in all agendas, programmes and activities that promote sustainable development.
The Learning Teacher Network is an official UNESCO GAP Key Partner on the capacity building of educators and trainers (GAP, Priority Action Area 3).
The Sustainable Development Goal number 4 "Quality Education" - within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development - is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
