“Education has always been the strongest medium to realise the social aspirations. Thus, in achievement of MDGs too, the role of education could be crucial. Although, achieving universal primary education is one of the MDGs but without a viable and authentic education system the achievement of other MDGs also seem to be a distant dream. We are now way beyond the mid-point between adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the target date of 2015,” inform the conference organizers.
Accordingly, the conference will be holding deliberation over possibilities, opportunities and threats of education for achieving millennium development goals. It is being envisaged that a conglomeration of entire academic fraternity, policy makers, practitioners the theory builders will provide inputs during the conference to visualise the role of education in context of achieving millennium development goals.
Various themes of the conference will be: Achieving universal primary education; education for promoting gender equality and empowering women; education for ensuring environmental sustainability; environmental education; ethical education; education for developing a global partnership for development; education and its inter-relevance in solving contemporary issues.
