DESCRIPTION

The surge in population replacements and influx of refugees, emanating from a wide range of factors, including but not limited to gross Human Rights violations, financial crisis and environmental changes, has underlined the need to focus our efforts in effectively and fairly integrating those populations within the host country’s society in a way that helps different cultures and identities thrive along. “Educating for Peace” seeks to live up to the goal of no lost generation. The goal of the event is to enhance public-private partnership as a mean to ensure that replacement will not hinder one’s right to access education.
