Inclusive Education for All: from Ideas to Action A student-centred approach to support social cohesion

ZAGREB – Ensuring every child’s full potential should be the top priority for education policy makers and practitioners worldwide. If the visions of UN Sustainable Development Goals and EU European Education Area are to be achieved, legal and policy frameworks, as well as effective delivery systems, have to be in place and implemented.

As a part of coordinated effort to generate more impact on the issue, with the support of the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, SIRIUS – Policy Network on Migrant Education and Network of Education Policy Centers (NEPC) merged their annual policy conferences into the “Inclusive Education for All: from Ideas to Action” event that took place in Zagreb at the beginning of May.

The two networks brought together their audience to share the knowledge and experiences from their geographies, the EU and its neighbourhood. About 130 participants from education ministries, universities, research institutions, civil society’s organisations and schools from 33 countries gathered to discuss ways in which education systems contribute to secure fairer societies.

NEPC and SIRIUS naturally “bond” as they share the same core values and goals. «What is also needed though – stated Lana Jurko, NEPC Executive Director – is bridging. A society that has only bonding and no bridging is in serious danger of coming apart. Modern pluralistic democracies have special needs for bridging social capital».
