On Wednesday and Thursday 16-17 2016 March the "School for All" (Škola pro všechny) conference on inclusive education took place at Impact Hub Praha in the Czech capital. The aim of the conference was to discuss how an inclusive approach can interconnect various areas of education and transform the conception of the school environment.

Organizers say this involves how classroom and school spaces are designed as well as changes to work methods, the assessment of children, collaboration with faculty, and the development of the community nature of schools and their cooperation with families and other institutions and organizations. The conference has presented examples and experiences from practice and offered practical workshops focused, for example, on working with educators and on bullying.

Part of the program is dedicated to the topic of inclusion in the context of lifelong learning - support for persons at risk of social exclusion in the areas of credit literacy, financial literacy, health literacy and social literacy, as well as educational programs for immigrants or persons leaving prison. "Inclusion in the context of lifelong learning is less discussed than inclusion in the schools has been, even though it affects all levels of our society - people of all ages, ethnicities, social status, etc. Education is a powerful tool for preventing social exclusion and its content and form must be adapted to the needs of the members of various segments across the entire spectrum of society," said the Director of the Czech Government Agency for Social Inclusion, Radek Jiranek.

The conference is being held by the National Contact Point for the EEA and Norway Grants in the Czech Republic in collaboration with EDUin, o.p.s. and the Agency for Social Inclusion. The detailed program is here (Czech language only).
