The Inclusion, Mobility, and Multilingual Education Conference: Exploring the Role of Languages for Education and Development
The overall aim of the conference is to provide a space for practitioners, NGO staff, researchers and government representatives to explore and exchange on issues of language, inclusion, and mobility in education and development.
The Conference aims to:
- Explore how an open and inclusive multilingual approach, especially in the context of education and wider society, can maximise outcomes and well-being for different groups and for an increasingly mobile population;
- Create linkages between policy, practice and research on how multilingual approaches can be used to advance (civic) participation, access, and learning for children and adults from marginalised and mobile communities;
- Investigate the role of, and balance between, different languages – local, national, and international – in the context of diverse and mobile populations, and social and educational practice;
- Identify policy priorities for advancing multilingual approaches to social and educational policy-making, learning and development;
- Raise awareness among participants in key thematic areas.
