Introduction to E-discussion: Innovating for Girls' Education


International Day of the Girl Child 2013 – Innovating for Girls' Education

Innovating for Girls’ Education” E-discussion on the World We Want platform 

This discussion is closed now. Thank you, everyone, for participating! Please find the summary of the discussion here

The fulfillment of girls’ right to education is first and foremost an obligation and moral imperative. There is overwhelming evidence that girls’ education, especially at the secondary level, is a powerful transformative force for societies and girls themselves. While there has been significant progress in improving girls’ access to education over the last two decades, many girls, particularly the most marginalized, continue to be deprived of this basic right. Girls in many countries are still unable to attend school and complete their education due to safety-related, financial, institutional and cultural barriers. When girls are in school, perceived low returns from poor quality of education, low aspirations, or household chores and other responsibilities keep them from attending school or from achieving adequate learning outcomes.

Innovation will be an important strategy in addressing the nature and scale of barriers girls continue to face and in ensuring they receive an education commensurate with the challenges of the 21st century. Smart and creative use of technology is one route to overcoming gender barriers to girls’ learning and achievement, but innovation in partnerships, policies, resource utilization, community mobilization, and most of all, the engagement of young people themselves, can be important catalyzing forces.

International Day of the Girl Child is an international observance day declared by the United Nations in 2011 and celebrated annually on 11 October. In recognition of the importance of fresh and creative perspectives to propel girls’ education forward, the theme of International Day of the Girl Child for 2013 will be: Innovating for Girls’ Education. UNICEF as a leading agency for the coordination of the theme and related events is starting a new e-discussion with a similar theme, on the World We Want online platform. The discussion will be coordinated by the Youth Advocacy Group of the United Nations Global Education First Initiative (GEFI).

The e-discussion aims to gather and learn about innovative approaches, ideas and solutions from different regions, countries and communities that help improve girls' education and their learning outcomes, particularly of those most disadvantaged. The e-discussion will be facilitated by expert moderators and will run for three weeks from 16 September to 6 October, each week covering a new theme. The theme of Week One isInnovation in Education Infrastructure.

Good morning,
  On September 14th,2013, Asia Cultural Artists Association is in support and approval of the United Nations, hold“Asia Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project and the global cultural art works Asia trading platform price validation the launch conference”. Asia Cultural Artists Association as an important complement to the world to fulfill the Rio +20 conference on sustainable development in the global culture and arts in the world, Logistical support of United Nations responsible for the follow-up to the Rio +20 Conference and be included in the 2013 68th UN General assembly agenda. Rio +20 Conference emphasis on action and implementations of the UN Millennium Development Goals. 2014 is the first year of implementation of the Asia Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project actions, 10 years will spent to cultivate and deliver 100 thousand culture art talents to the world . 100 thousand Culture Art talents report will be submit to UN General assembly in 2024, and the talents list will be included in annals of the UN document library, be as new power of the global cultural artists to promote the world forever peace. Jiangsu especially Nanjing is the outstanding place. In particular is culture and arts, with the Vigorously assistance of Jiangsu and Nanjing, in the support of United Nations, Asia Cultural Artists Association choose Nanjing as “Asia Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project office base”.
China is a developing country with rich talents and large population. It plays a leading role in promoting world peace and development, so Development Plan of “the 100 thousand Talent Project” will start from China. This plan will select and cultivate ten thousand cultural artists who can make extensive exchanges with other countries around the world. It will promote the communications among Asian nations and the nations of the world, promote harmony by communication, and promote environmental sustainable development. We will take ten years to complete the target of 100 thousand talent project.
Starting from this conference, we will select one Asian country every year on a regular basis to hold "Asia Cultural Artists Talent" training to make cultural and artistic exchanges with all countries in the world especially Asian countries, and promote easy access for the "flows of civilization and harmony".
The cultural artists who pass the Asia Cultural Artists Association 100 thousand talents project plan training will achieve the culture and arts award fund support which provided by Asia Cultural Artists Association. Asia Cultural Artists Association will set up a global cultural artists fund, which will be held in one Asian country and take turns in every five years. The global cultural artists fund will choose a highest prize winner and reward $1 million; choose five ordinary award winners and reward $200 thousand every five years. Any cultural and artistic creative artists who promote the United Nations Millennium Development Goals for 2015 and development agendas after the Millennium Development Goals can be chosen by Asia Cultural Artists Association.
The global cultural art market requires series of trade rules. Different countries and nationalities have their own cultures and arts. These cultures and arts are the most precious wealth if they can be turned into works of art. How to locate the value of global flow of culture and art works? This problem is concerned by the international community and the countries in the world. Asia Cultural Artists Association, as a part of civil society and cultural art of the United Nations, has the responsibilities and obligations to share the culture and art of the UN to take scientific, reasonable and fair valuation and specification on the value of the global flow of culture and art comply with the principles of international trade. Establishing the Asia trading platform for price review mechanism of global culture and art is the general requirements from the artists who engaged in the cultural and artistic creation to reflect their own value. It will also provide a reasonable and fair price reference standard for global cultural art market.
Cooperating with other countries in the world, Asia Cultural Artists Association will organize the "Asia Cultural Artists Exhibition" with Asian nations which have rich cultures and arts together every three years since 2014. The exhibition takes "collecting global culture and art" as the theme; takes "harmonious multicultural art to promote global environmental sustainable development" as the purpose; takes "achieving the world is a harmonious society regardless of nationality and the country" as the goal.

Ladies and Gentleman, I am very grateful to every reporter friend、artist for attending the Global Cultural artists exchange and create summit and culture art works exhibition, and Asia Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project office landed in Nanjing、Asia Cultural Artists Association Asia Creation Center in Nanjing opening ceremony. In order to promote Chinese culture to go and take root in the world, develop Chinese culture foreign trade to occupy the world market. Asia Cultural Artists Association is under the core leadership of UN, with the assistance of Nanjing Jiang and the support of Chinese government, I believe that China’s new culture, especially the innovation culture and arts will be able to blossom in the global culture and art market. “Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project office” is the only international culture arts communication service platform to support full service to every country in the world, is not only beneficial to provide service for cultural artists all around the world, also to China’s foreign exchange of culture artists, promote world-class culture art environment and the development of Chinese culture, provides a fast track to the world. “Cultural Artists 100 thousand talents project office”is the cultural arts action center of link the world culture arts and choose the world excellent cultural artists appointed by (UN)Asia Cultural Artists Association, is also the trade center of global culture art works.
