A Conference on ‘Sustainable Education in Early Childhood: Nepalese Practice’

The Sustainable Education Group – Nepal (SEG-N), a non-profit-making organization, as usual organized a conference on ‘Sustainable Education in Early Childhood: Nepalese Practice’ on the occasion of Saraswoti Puja; worshipping of goddess of knowledge, dated 26 January 2015 though the occasion fell on 25 January, 2015.

Sarswati Puja, according to the Hindu mythology, is a good day to start learning. So, in Nepal most of the young children are enrolled to schools as it is considered a good opportunity to start the journey of learning. Many schools across Nepal offer free admission on this very day. There was a total of 20 participants representing Satpragya School (previously known Geneva Global School), Vidhya Sanskar School (previously known Chelsea International Academy) and Kinderworld School. The keynote speakers were Mr John Kesner, a professor at Georgia State University, the US and Mr Parbat Dhungana, a senior lecturer at Kathmandu University School of Education (KUSOED), Nepal. The conference took place at premises of Satpragya School, Lalitpur.

  1. this is truly good to know about such conference for people like me who is an ECD practitioner. I am wondering why only 20 participants from only 3 schools for such important issue.

  2. Hi Maya jee, we have seen your comment very lately. The conference was made possible at very short notice resulting very few participation. And the host had limited capacity as well. We hope to see you and discuss further on potential common interests.
