SCOPE 2019 Welcome
Welcome to the 2nd Asian Symposium on Culture, Policy and Education (SCOPE 2019) to be held in Hiroshima, Japan on Friday and Saturday, December 21-22, 2019 at the Hiroshima Bunka Koryu Kaikan Hotel in Hiroshima. SCOPE 2019 will coincide with the end of autumn and start of winter in Japan, which is actually an ideal time of the year for visiting Hiroshima. All attending participants will have an opportunity for travel around Hiroshima, including its two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Peace Park and the Shrine Island of Miyajima (Itsukushima).
Please note that the number of oral and poster time slots is limited. The organizers will close submissions and registration when the event has reached its capacity.
About SCOPE 2019
The rapidly evolving and developing world has contributed to greater world prosperity and interdependence resulting in a global village of diverse social, political, economic, and cultural influences. As education and innovation propel development, quality education and learning play a crucial role in empowering learners, creating individual and national success, and bringing about social cohesion. By creating and implementing coherent policies that are holistic and humanistic in nature, societies can be more inclusive and better suited for today’s growing challenges.
In recent years, global cooperation and developments in information and communication technology among others have contributed to a greater educated world population improving the quality of life worldwide. However, this progress often masks the widening gap in education quality, equity and outcomes between social classes within and between states, which contributes to the marginalization of peoples and fractured communities. As cross-border population flows increase and diverse cultures become more intertwined in our global village, it is necessary to understand and integrate the different behaviors, traditions and customs into contemporary education.
Culture, education and policy when properly aligned contribute to sustainable human, social and economic development and transform individuals as well as nations. With the theme At the Crossroads, this event will be a wonderful opportunity to explore current research, trends, and insights about this phenomenon while expanding your professional networks.
We welcome proposals of 250 words in English by Friday, October 4, 2019.
