Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development.
Since 2000, the total enrolment rate of primary education in developing regions increased from 83% to 91% in 2015. Despite the progress, 57 million children still remain out of school due to high levels of poverty, armed conflicts and other emergencies. How can we bridge this gap?
On the other hand, in the developed countries, we have the privilege of completing not only primary education, but also secondary, tertiary and beyond. However, it seems that the education system is far from perfect, as suggested by the many problems that our society is struggling with. What should we do about it?
We look forward to have a meaningful discussion with you in our next meeting!
Date: 20 Oct (Fri) 6.30pm – 10pm
