The XXV1 World Congress of the Organisation Mondiale pour l’Education Préscolaire (OMEP) will take place August 11-13 2010 in Goteborg, Sweden.
As Speth (2008) has argued:
“The essence of sustainable development is equity towards future generations”
As advocates for children in their early years, sustainable development is therefore a central concern for OMEP and this is reflected in the theme of the congress:
Children – Citizens in a challenged world
OMEP’s aims and objectives are to defend and promote the rights of the child with special emphasis on the right to education and care worldwide.
