The United States, UNESCO and Education for All – Calling Higher Education to a Higher Calling

Conference website

The conference will be at Georgetown University (Washington, DC) on February 28, 2005.

"The purpose of this Conference is to discuss the important role America’s colleges and universities can play in achieving Education For All by 2015. Education For All is a major international effort coordinated by UNESCO to make the benefits of universal primary education and life-long learning accessible to every person in every nation, especially in countries where the need is greatest. The challenge is enormous; over 800 million people cannot read and write and more than 103 million children are not in school."
