Event details

Environmental issues are probably the most pressing and far-reaching problems faced by developing nations, in part because they impact every facet of life. Increasingly there is a demand from ethnolinguistic communities to address environmental concerns within or as a natural outreach of our language and education work and goals. There are also calls for greater multi-disciplinary approaches, particularly from funders, and to further integrate wider developmental issues into our programs. Join us as we explore how we can best meet these needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question/ What is the 'LEAD Community of Practice'?
Answer/
 It may be better to ask 'WHO ARE the community of practice?'! In short it is a 'community' of individuals, teams, organisations and networks all grappling with questions around language, education and development. The focus of the community is working with marginalised communities, often marginalised because of their unique culture and/or language, and it is facilitated by LEAD Asia, a unit of SIL International in Asia.

Q/ I don’t work in Asia, am I still able to attend LEAD CoP events?
A/
 Yes! The LEAD CoP is open to anyone interested in the intersecting issues of language, education and development. The majority of attendees will be located and/or working within Asia and so there will naturally be a focus on the unique challenges associated with this region. However, the more broad the range of participants the richer the discussions, and as such we warmly welcome attendees from elsewhere.

Q/ Is there a registration fee?
A/ No. It is free to attend but you are responsible for your own accommodation, travel and meal costs (except for lunches during the event, which will will be provided at the venue for all participants).

Q/ Do you have funds to help me attend LEAD CoP events?
A/ Unfortunately, since we do not have external funding for events, LEAD Asia does not have any funds to help participants attend.

Q/ Evening meals are NOT included with the event - are there places to eat near the event venue?
A/ Yes, there are lots of good places to eat very close by offering a range of cuisine to suit all budgets.

Q/ How do I register?
A/ A link to a registration form will be made available a few months before each event. Keep an eye on the event information (by clicking on the links above) and register to join the LEAD list here. Please remember to complete one form for each person planning to attend.
