We believe that the conference theme is highly relevant to the CAMCA region. The region is diverse in terms of geography, culture, and socioeconomic conditions, which requires a holistic approach to education and development. With the ongoing challenges, there is a pressing need to create more inclusive and sustainable societies.  Transformative education can play a critical role in addressing these challenges and building resilient communities.
