Over 1,500 people register for Central Asia Nobel Fest Live
Coronavirus spread and its consequences made serious adjustments to the work of the education industry. The problem affected all its fields, involving inclusive learning. The task of the fest participants is to discuss issues of equal access to education for all children in the world. Central Asia Nobel Fest Live will be held online this time. The event will be attended by such famous personalities as Yemeni human rights activist, journalist and politician Tawakkol Karman and Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi.
Experts said that inclusive education is more often considered as one of the necessary ways to solve economic problems, since it reduces the costs on social security and promotes social cohesion. It also contributes to the development of strong technological base and the economy in general. Kazakhstan gives due consideration to this issue as well. According to assessment of Kazakh Ministry of Education and Science, the number of children who need high quality inclusive education in the country is growing every year. Therefore, the state plans to increase the number of schools that create proper conditions up to 70 percent.
Along with the issues of the inclusive education, the Central Asia Nobel Fest Live participants will hold discussions on globalization, effects of COVID-19 on the future world and many other issues. Seven Nobel Prize winners and three winners of the so-called “Oscars of science” - Breakthrough Prizе will take part in the meeting. More than 1,500 participants from 20 countries, 92 cities and 104 universities of the world have already registered for the forum. The registration for the fest is still open.
