The World University Service (WUS) is hosting a global conference on the right to quality education taking place in Vienna, Austria from May 14 to 16, 2020.
Within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 - the right to quality education – the conference Human Right to Quality Education for All" focuses on global challenges learners, educators and educational institutions, but also countries, economies and governments are facing when it comes to shrinking civic spaces in education, access to education for refugees, migrants and girls as well as access to inclusive and quality education for sustainable development (ESD) and global citizenship. The conference will address key areas such as innovation and quality assurance to achieve excellence, human rights and learning impact in situations of forced migration or how to maintain civic space in education, because we believe that they are necessary in making educational services work for all. Particular emphasis is given to youth perspectives and connecting those with the experience of senior educators and experts.
To this end, the event brings together experts and participants from different sectors and groups: educators and education designers, policy makers, experts from international agencies and civil society activists, persons from businesses, students from different backgrounds, and many more.
The event is for everyone who wants to discuss with experts on the issues of education for sustainable development, academic freedom and civic space & access to education.
