The E-Camp: Social Accountability for Better Education Services aims to amplify the importance of citizen-government engagement in the discussion, implementation and monitoring of the education MDG.
Specifically, the 3-day regional event will gather education advocates, supporters and stakeholders from civil society, government and international development partners to:
- share knowledge on citizen-led initiatives to monitor school services and opportunities for constructive engagement with government;
- harness a community of education monitors and advocates in the region; and
- draft an action agenda to strengthen citizen engagement as an approach to achieving the education development goal.
The three-day gathering will be conducted through the “unconference” approach. The “unconference approach” is an open-space, self-organizing, participant-led event. It is expected to stimulate new insights and innovative ideas.
Event passes are available at US$ 200 per person, and US$ 150 for youth, civil society organizations / non-government organizations. The early bird pass is available at US$ 150 for participants who register before 15 November 2014. This includes the following:
