“Connecting education: inclusion, mobility and excellence in support of the Sustainable Development Goals”
The Ministry of National Education Romania is pleased to host the 7th ASEM Education Ministers' Meeting on 15 and 16 May 2019 in the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest.
During ASEMME6, the ministers not only endorsed the conclusions by the chair, they also adopted the Seoul declaration, making an analysis of the past ten years of the AEP, as well as adopting a vision for the next ten years. Having these documents in mind, the host introduced the overall theme of the ASEMME7 as following : “Connecting education: inclusion, mobility and excellence in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.”
The Seoul Declaration adopted at the ASEMME6 (2017, Seoul) as well as the ISOM in Jakarta (2018) and the SOM1 in Austria (2018), have paved the way to this overarching theme. Both in the Seoul Declaration as during the ISOM and SOM1, Ministers and Senior Officials have indicated that the ASEM Education process should adapt to global challenges such as Digitalisation and Sustainability. The ASEMME7 in Bucharest will therefore have a closer look on the priority theme of 'Balanced Mobility' within ASEM Education and how digitalisation could be an opportunity to ontribute to better balanced and more inclusive mobility programmes. When considering inclusion in education and more specifically, in mobility, the Ministers Meeting brings in the Agenda of Education 2030. Therefore, the Ministers are also invited to to discuss how the ASEM Education Process can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The host of the ASEMME7 toghether with the ASEM Education Secretariat hopes to welcome all Ministers of (Higher) Education in Bucharest.
