Offer: UN webcast conference on Poverty & Girls Right to Education

To open up the discussion and allow the broadest possible participation in the E4 initiative, the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative will be holding an e-conference prior to the E4 conference in Dakar in May. The e-conference will take place over a period of 5 weeks, between April 12th and May 14th. Each week will focus on one of the themes emerging from the situation analysis produced for the conference:

April 12th – 16th: Poverty, intersecting inequalities and girls’ rights to education
April 19th – 23rd : Quality education for gender equality
April 26th – 30th : Breaking the silence: contesting violence and girls’ education
May 3rd – 7th: Connecting social policy: climate change, health, AIDS and girls’ education
May 10th – 14th: Convergence week

Introductory sessions will be webcast live via Elluminate audio-graphical conferencing, and will also be recorded and made available for off-line viewing.

The discussion on the site will continue for a few days after the keynote, and then we will publish a report summarising the emerging issues and insights.

In the convergence week the public will have a last chance to discuss the issues.

A report summarising the e-conference will be published on-line and presented at the conference in Dakar.

Who should attend?
First and foremost: you! Bring your experiences from practice. We particularly welcome participation from academics, practitioners, and policy makers.

How do I participate?
Please join our weekly webcasts, to hear an overview of the issues arrising from the discussion papers. Please join the conversation by reading, responding to or opening new threads on the discussion at the bottom of each week’s page.
