Reminder: Invitation to ‘Global Health and Education Inequalities: The State of the World’s Children 2016’

skjermbildeEvery child has the right to a fair chance in life. But around the world, millions of children are trapped in an intergenerational cycle of disadvantage that endangers their futures – and the future of their societies. We have a choice: invest in the most excluded children now or risk a more divided and unfair world. By shifting priorities and concentrating greater effort and investment on children who face the greatest challenges, governments and development partners can make sure every child has a fair chance to achieve her full potential – and realize a future of her own making.

UNICEF and Norad invite you to the launch of The State of the World’s Children 2016.

Date: 26th of October
Time: 09:00 – 11:30
Venue: Norad Info Centre, 5th floor – Bygdøy Allé 2, Oslo
