On behalf of the EAN, I would like to express a huge appreciation of everyone who took part in the first ever World Congress on Access to Post-Secondary Education in Montreal last week. We hope your participation in the congress was successful and that it led to many new contacts, exciting project ideas and partnerships.
As you may have noticed, on display at the Congress were two Declarations from the SiS Catalyst project – the EAN is a partner responsible for dissemination. SiS Catalyst (Science in Society): Children as Change Agents is a European Commission funded project, to enhance the interaction between children and educational institutions – with a particular focus on empowering post-secondary institutions to engage with those unlikely to enter them.
We would like to remind you to sign up and endorse the two Declarations, adding yourself or your organisation to a group of committed practitioners, researchers, and students who work in supporting children to realise their potential through education.
To find out more about the declarations and to sign up, please follow the links:
