CALL FOR PROPOSALS: International High-Level Conference “Educating for the Rule of Law”
The Education for Justice (E4J) initiative seeks to promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities designed for primary, secondary and tertiary levels. The UN is excited to bring together policymakers and educators at our International High-Level Conference, “Educating for the Rule of Law: Inspire. Change. Together.” from 7-9 October 2019. The event convenes policymakers from different fields (such as Ministries of Education and Ministries of Justice), educators and academics to build bridges between these communities and discuss innovative ways to empower the next generation of change makers.
There will be three categories of applications, one for each of the education levels: primary, secondary and tertiary. If you are a student between the ages of 6-12 (primary), 13-18 (secondary) or 19-29 (tertiary) and believe strongly in the role of education for promoting the rule of law, they would love to involve you in their event. Successful proposal submitters will have the opportunity to come to Vienna to present their ideas to the participants of the conference. The top five successful applications will be invited to the event. Flights, meals, accommodation and cost for transportation in Vienna will be financed in accordance with UN rules.
