​The Government of Turkey and the UNICEF Regional Office for Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS) are co-organizing a Ministerial Conference on the theme of ‘including all children in quality learning’. The Conference will be held in Turkey in mid-December 2013.

The high-level event will launch a Call for Action to advance equity in education participation and learning and to contribute to on-going regional discussions on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

The Call for Action will mark the beginning of a regional initiative that will bring a critical mass of countries together to work collaboratively toward including all out of school children in quality learning.
