The United Nations Children's Fund in partnership with the Akaki Tsereteli State University and under the
auspices of the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia will be hosting the first-ever International Conference dedicated to the incorporation of the Rights of the Child into the University Education Programmes and Curricula to provide space for teaching and learning about the provisions and principles of Child Rights to help empower future specialists to take action and put children’s rights into practice in day-to-day lives – at home, at school, in the communities.
The two-day conference will bring together high officials of the Government of Georgia, members of the Parliament of Georgia, the Public Defender Office, delegates of UNICEF's partner Embassies, as well as representatives of the UN agencies and respective international organizations, students, academic staff of universities, school teachers and education specialists.

The role of universities in promoting the child rights and influencing social norms will be the central to discussions.
