Strength Through Diversity

The Strength through Diversity: Education for Inclusive Societies project aims to identify how education systems can be equitable and inclusive by supporting the learning and well-being outcomes of diverse populations, and ensuring that all individuals are able to engage with others in increasingly diverse and complex societies.

About us
