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.

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