We hope your year is off to a great start. This year will be critical for disability-inclusive development, especially for education of children with disabilities. The second Global Disability Summit (GDS) is just around the corner (15-17 February) and we are looking forward to the commitments that are made towards disability-inclusive education. A lot of progress has been made since the first Global Disability Summit in 2018 and we look forward to learning about what has gone on across the world and what’s next!
This issue lays out all you need to know about the GDS, including the many side events focused on disability-inclusive education. We are excited to host one of these side events on Thursday, February 17th, from 6:30 am to 7:45 am (EST). We will share with you updates on the IEI, including the many activities supported by this trust fund.
Please reach out to us if you have a blog post or anything else you would like featured on the IEI website—we are happy to feature your work on disability-inclusive education. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join our LinkedIn Group and post questions directly there.
With best wishes for a successful Global Disability Summit,
The Inclusive Education Initiative Team
