Special Open Seminar:Early Childhood Development and Sustainable Future Society
Date: February 21, 2019 14:00~16:00
Venue: Campus Innovation Center (Multiple Purpose Room 2, 2nd Fl.) [Map]
Education is a key enabler for achieving SDGs, and is expected to equip children and all learners with necessary knowledge and skills, both cognitive and non-cognitive as well as values and attitudes. Early childhood development (ECD) as a foundation of education, therefore, has critical roles to play. Success or failure of ECD today determines whether children manage to live fully in the future as the core generation of society characterized by Industry 4.0 and Society5.0.
The seminar invites two globally distinguished experts on ECD and discuss these issues openly with participants.
Lynette Okengo, Executive Director, Africa Early Childhood Network (AfECN)
Mathias Urban, Professor, Desmond Chair of Early Childhood Education, Dublin City University
Kazuhiro Yoshida, Professor and Director, Center for the Study of International Cooperation in Education, Hiroshima University
