[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Join the open conference “Addressing Inclusion Among Children & Adolescents Living in Poverty: Progress Towards Attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will be held at The New School on October 11 and 12, 2018. Scholars, practitioners, advocates, and students will discuss how to address social inclusion for children living in poverty within the context of the SDGs.

The event will be divided into two parts: a closed workshop on October 11 and 12, and an open conference on the afternoon of October 11. On the closed workshop, the participants of the academic event will deliberate on better ways to investigate, monitor and measure child poverty. An international committee selected 22 out of 120 papers from authors from around the world. After the workshop, a compendium of the discussed papers will be published.

The open conference will bring together experts form Equity for Children, SOS Children’s Villages, UNICEF, CROP, ChildFund Alliance, and the World Bank to share their insights. Panelist will debate ways to measure inclusion, urban inequalities, and try to come up with ways to count “invisible children” who are not covered by standard surveys, and also on programs and policies for preventing violence against children and adolescents.
