Advancing inclusive education throughout the life-span
The conference aims at setting the stage looking at aspects of education as an essential part of life. The goal is to start a conversation for inclusive education becoming the new normal.
The keynotes, workshops and “walkshops” demonstrate how well-working examples of good practices can be facilitated and turned into new perspectives.
Discussions focus on how crucial stakeholders, policy makers, teachers, students, families and communities can take action and contribute within their areas of responsibility.

- Vocational training and further education
