GENEVA, Nov. 18, 2019 /CNW/ --With all revisions complete, the Universal Declaration of Balanced and Inclusive Education has now been finalised. The Universal Declaration will be officially adopted in Djibouti City during the closing ceremony of the III ForumBIE 2030 – International Summit on Balanced and Inclusive Education, which will be held from 27-29 January 2020.
As a part of the commitments contained within the Universal Declaration, its adoption will see the establishment of new multilateral instruments of technical and financial cooperation, ensuring sustainable mechanisms to support education systems around the world.
The Universal Declaration, inscribing itself in a process led by countries of the Global South, addresses the urgent need to enact educational reforms that fulfil the contextualised needs of communities and societies, and the imperative of sustainable development, by placing the necessary resources at their collective disposal.
The Education Relief Foundation (ERF) is a Geneva-based not-for-profit and non-governmental organisation which serves to develop, promote and embed a balanced and inclusive education through policy development, capacity building and civil society engagement, amongst other activities.
