World Students’ Parliament

Join the Conversation, Ignite Change!

We are thrilled to extend a warm invitation to you for the inaugural World Children Parliament organized by the International Association for Quality Education – this will be an extraordinary gathering of talented minds committed to transforming global education and the lives of many children and young people.

Why the World Children Parliament?

In the realm of education, our shared mission is to cultivate a brighter, more equitable future for all of our children and young adults. The World Children’s Parliament aims to be the epicentre of this transformative dialogue, where we discuss innovative educational solutions to some of the greatest global educational issues and share good practice to inform change. We recognize that education is the cornerstone of progress, and it is through collective action that we can address the pressing issues affecting learners locally, nationally and internationally.

What’s on the Agenda? 

In our endeavors to shape the future of education, the World Children’s Parliament is committed to addressing pivotal issues that resonate across classrooms worldwide. It convenes international forums on behalf of the protection and rights of children. Our agenda encapsulates the very essence of transformative education, delving into various pillars that define our collective responsibility. We concern that Protection of the child is key importent factor for quality education.  

Consequently, you will find that some of the topics for discussion will revolve around school curricula, the teaching-learning process, assessment and evaluation, school leadership and management, as well as child development and child protection. Mostly, when international conferences are ongoing, the theme of the World children Parliament will be aligned with the conference themes. In this moment we have given more priority for Child Protection.

World Children Parliament is the echo of children on
Rights of the Child
to Survival, to Development, to Protection and to Participation.

International forum parallel to the international conference on Quality Education 2024

“Dr. Kalam International Foundation (DKIF) is a research organization based in New Delhi, India, and the International Association for Quality Education (IAFQE) is a non-profit oriented international education organization which is working with schools, institutes, and education organizations in the global society to enhance the quality of education, focusing on SDG No. 4: Quality Education. The International Conference on Quality Education 2024 is organized by the IAFQE and DKIF together from May 26th to 30th, 2024, in New Delhi, India, with the participation of global leaders in education, school owners, principals, educators, teachers, and special VIPs from different countries. The conference will focus on ’empowering 21st-century skills and spiritual well-being in children by enhancing the quality of education through STEAM education, employability, entrepreneurship, green education, and mindfulness.’

The themes of the conference are Early childhood and school curriculum, Teaching-learning methods (pedagogical approaches), Assessment and evaluation systems, Capacity development of teachers, Leadership and school management, Quality and standards of schools, Research and innovations, Corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Without the child’s safety and well-being, it is difficult to be concerned about holistic development or quality education for children. For the child’s safety and well-being, a collaborative effort involving families, communities, schools, healthcare providers, social services, and policymakers is needed for physical, emotional, psychological, social, as well as food safety. Therefore, parallel to the international conference on quality education, a special program called “World Children Parliament” is organized by the IAFQE and DKIF with many organizations related to child protection.

The Child Protection Authority of Sri Lanka also gives academic guidance and consultancy to make this event more successful, and Mr. Udaya Kumara Amarasingha, Chairman of the Child Protection Authority Sri Lanka, has been appointed as the head of the board of jury to evaluate performance and to nominate presenters for awards. The World children Parliament is an online international platform where school children in the global society can apply to share their ideas, knowledge, and best practices, school projects related to child  protection. Speakers have the opportunities to participate in the international conference on quality education representing their schools, and they can do presentation on child  protection at the conference. Based on the performance of presentations, both schools and presenters will be eligible to receive international awards such as  ‘Excellence Presentation on Child Protection,’ and ‘Changing Agent for Child protection.’

Schools children in the global society can apply online for the world children Parliament. Based on their performance, they will be eligible to present even at the physical conference which is going to be held in New Delhi, India.”

Based on the performance of presentations, both schools/Institutes and students will be eligible to receive international awards such as

World Teachers’ Parliament on Rights of the Child

to Survival, to Development, to Protection and to Participation 

International forum parallel to the international conference on Quality Education 2024

Join the Conversation, Ignite Change!

We are thrilled to extend a warm invitation to you for the World Teachers Parliament organized by the International Association for Quality Education and DR. Kalam International Foundation parallel to the international conference on Quality Education which is going to be held in New Delhi, India from May 26th till 30th, 2024.

Why the World Teachers’ Parliament?

In the realm of education, our shared mission is to cultivate a brighter, more equitable future for all of our children and young adults. The World Teacher’s Parliament aims to be the epicentre of this transformative dialogue, where we discuss innovative educational solutions to some of the greatest global educational issues and share good practice to inform change. We recognize that education is the cornerstone of progress, and it is through collective action that we can address the pressing issues affecting learners locally, nationally and internationally. Child protection is a key factor to ensure quality of the  education all over the world. Therefor world teachers parliment gives more priority on child protection.

What’s on the Agenda? 

The protection of children is a responsibility of every state in the world, every civil organization, and every community. Every child has the right to grow up in a safe and inclusive environment.

the World Teachers Parliament is a productive international platform for teachers all over the world to express their ideas, feelings, best practices, and knowledge to protect the rights of children.

 Each and every person, organization, and government have a responsibility to ensure the rights of children to survival, development, protection, and participation. Without ensuring the rights of children, it is impossible to establish quality education in any school or any country.

Children should have psychological freedom to pursue their education. They should feel free and have a fair physical, psychological, social, and emotional environment to pursue their education freely.

Children should feel that they are protected from any kind of discrimination. Children should have confidence that their rights are protected. That culture needs to be instilled in the home, in the school, and in society to facilitate children’s studies.

After signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child, all countries have taken many steps to ensure the rights of the children. Sharing best practices of these countries is essential for policymakers, implementing organizations, as well as communities to move forward for child protection.

Therefore, the World Teachers Parliament is a good international platform for educators, teachers in the global society to share their best practices on the rights of children.

The knowledge shared in the World Teachers Parliament will be important for policymakers, implementing organizations, as well as every profession working for children’s rights.

Fresh viewpoints may emerge, and it will be helpful for all responsible organizations to rethink strategies for the protection of child rights.

In addition to that, empowering educators with knowledge of child protection and enhancing society’s awareness of child protection are the best strategies to prevent all kinds of discrimination against children.

Therefore, the World Teachers Parliament is a very valuable benchmark to empower schools, educators, teachers, children, as well as all kinds of stakeholders in society.

Nowadays, social media have reached every doorstep in every country. When discussions of the World Teachers Parliament are broadcast through YouTube, Facebook, and other social media platforms, it will empower society to protect child rights. It will help to elevate social standards towards child protection. Stakeholders in society will understand the value of protecting child rights, align their attitudes towards child protection, take action to protect child rights in all their activities, and motivate others to do the same.

The most important thing is that they will stand against any kind of discrimination that may occur to the children in society. Therefore, the World Teachers Parliament is a good initiative to protect the rights of children.

We invite teachers and schools to seize this opportunity to showcase your knowledge, your competencies, as well as your innovative ideas at the World Teachers Parliament and at the International Conference on Quality Education, which is going to be held in New Delhi, India from May 26th.

The Child Protection Authority of Sri Lanka gives academic guidance and consultancy to make world teachers parliament more successful, and Mr. Udayakumara Amarasingha, Chairman of the Child Protection Authority Sri Lanka, has been appointed as the head of the board of jury to evaluate performance and to nominate presenters for awards.

The International conference is a good international platform for schools, principals, and teachers to showcase their excellence in quality education as well as their commitment towards child protection and get recognition for schools and individuals for their performance.
