High-level conference “Towards a renewed partnership with Africa”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 novembre 2017

european parliamentBruxelles. A conference on a new EU-Africa partnership will take place in the European Parliament on 22 November from 14.00 to 20.00 CET, ahead of the next EU-African Union summit.African political leaders, African Union representatives and UN officials will discuss with Parliament’s President Antonio Tajani, other MEPs, EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini, and many other leading figures from the private sector and civic society, including Dr Denis Mukwege, Laureate of the 2014 Sakharov Prize about new responses to the challenges Africa is facing and how to deepen the partnership between the two continents. EP President Antonio Tajani said: “This time our approach should be different: it should be a people-centred partnership of equals with a focus on youth and job creation. We should look at Africa through African eyes. Cooperation should not be only political and institutional, but fully involve economic actors and civil society”. The dynamic demographic trend that will make Africa the youngest and most populous continent in the world with 2.5 billion inhabitants by 2050 poses challenges regarding economic growth and job creation, as well as for security, migration, climate change and political participation.The conference brings together political leaders, policy makers and experts, who will discuss in three panels:
· Peace & Security and democracy, good governance and human rights
· Attracting investments for sustainable and inclusive development and growth
· Migration, youth and human development
Parliament will vote on a resolution advocating a new EU-Africa strategy on 16 November.In July, Parliament gave its green light to an EU investment plan tackling root causes of migration in Africa.
The conference in the European Parliament will take place in the run-up to the African Union -EU summit on 29/30 November in Abidjan, Cote d`Ivoire. This year, the summit will focus on “Investing in youth”, a key priority for both Europe and Africa. Other priorities for the partnership include peace and security, governance – including democracy, human rights, migration and mobility – investment and trade, environmental preservation and climate change, skills development and job creation.

2nd Conference on Future Education

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 novembre 2017

università roma treRoma Giovedì 16 Novembre 2017, ore 8:00 / 18 Novembre 2017Aula Magna del Rettorato Via Ostiense 159 17/18 Aula Magna del Dipartimento di Scienze della Formazione Polo didattico
Via Principe Amedeo 184 Il Futuro dell’Educazione con EDGAR MORIN L’apprendimento efficace in una epoca caratterizzata da una sempre maggiore rapidità, complessità e incertezza.Presentazioni di Nora Bateson, Federico Mayor Zaragoza (Unesco) , Elisabeth Paunovic (OMS) e molti altri illustri relatori che rappresentano i principali attori sociali dei cinque continenti.
Nel raccogliere le sfide emerse dalla conferenza tenutasi nel 2013 all’Università di Berkeley la World Academy of Art & Science, il World University Consortium hanno voluto coinvolgere l’Università di Roma Tre nell’organizzazione di una conferenza internazionale sul futuro dell’educazione che coinvolga tutti gli stakeholder – giovani, studenti, insegnanti, professori, lavoratori, imprenditori e la società civile.La conferenza avrà come obiettivo quello di individuare pratiche educative che rispondano alle necessità e alle aspirazioni dei diversi stakeholders – giovani, insegnanti, datori di lavoro, enti di ricerca, governi e parti sociali.
Come mai prima d’ora la società affronta profondi cambiamenti, spesso repentini, generando da un lato sfide e opportunità senza precedenti e da un altro timori e incertezze. E’ pertanto indispensabile prevedere e gestire le conseguenze della quarta rivoluzione industriale, le questioni ambientali, i livelli crescenti di diseguaglianza, la disoccupazione giovanile, la globalizzazione e virtualizzazione dell’economia, l’esplosione della comunicazione e della formazione on line, il moltiplicarsi dei contatti interculturali e dei flussi migratori e il loro impatto sul mondo dell’educazione e tutte le sue componenti.
L’educazione è il mezzo più efficace attraverso il quale l’umanità coscientemente guida l’evoluzione sociale, al fine di massimizzare i benefici e ridurre i costi e i traumi associati ai processi di cambiamento.E’ urgente garantire e ampliare le opportunità di accesso a un’educazione di qualità in ogni contesto e lungo tutto l’arco di vita. Limitarsi a moltiplicare le offerte educative esistenti non è sufficiente, ciò rischierebbe di aggravare invece che di diminuire il divario esistente tra le offerte formative odierne e quello di cui abbiamo veramente bisogno; non solo in termini quantitativi ma anche qualitativi – un nuovo paradigma educativo. Aggiornare i contenuti dei corsi non è sufficiente. Abbiamo bisogno di offerte educative che preparino efficacemente le nuove generazioni a gestire le innovazioni e sfide future che attualmente non siamo neppure in grado di anticipare.Gli obiettivi
● Implementare interventi pedagogici attivi e partecipati, centrati sulla persona e sullo studente;
● Valorizzare le nuove tecnologie emergenti per l’apprendimento e la diffusione delle conoscenze;
● Promuovere sistemi di pensiero integrati;
● Esplicitare il ruolo centrale dei valori nello sviluppo umano;
● Convergere verso approcci alla conoscenza multi e transdisciplinari;
● Sviluppare abilità mentali per il pensiero indipendente e creativo, leadership e imprenditorialità;
● Ampliare gli obiettivi e gli scopi dell’apprendimento formale e non formale fino a comprendere il più ampio sviluppo della persona, della sua individualità, dei suoi valori e delle sue competenze sociali.
E’ stata ideata come piattaforma aperta e attiva per facilitare tra i partecipanti la collaborazione, la condivisione e la co-creazione di nuove idee, approcci, metodologie e buone pratiche.
La partecipazione di numerosi stakeholder consentirà un approfondimento tematico, mediante sessioni inter e cross-disciplinari, dei principali argomenti afferenti l’area educativa e pedagogica: dalle nuove tecnologie dell’apprendimento fino all’impatto che i sistemi sociali ed economici contemporanei esercitano sul mercato del lavoro, l’acquisizione di skills trasversali, il potere sociale delle comunità, la cittadinanza, le diversità culturali e lo sviluppo personale.
Per gli studenti del Dipartimento di Scienze della Formazione dell’Università di Roma Tre sono previsti n. 30 posti gratuiti per ogni giornata. Per iscriversi occorre compilare il seguente modulo: . Per i colleghi e le colleghe del Dipartimento di Scienze della Formazione sono previsti max 15 posti gratuiti per ogni giornata. Per iscrizioni contattare la prof.ssa Anna Aluffi Pentini.Coloro che desiderano prendere parte all’evento potranno farlo iscrivendosi direttamente al sito della World Academy :

19:00 – 20:00 Closing session Michael Gahler, Chair of the Delegation for relations with the Pan-African Parliament Louis Michel, Chair of the Delegation to the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly Leaders of the Political Groups.
Development in Africa is a necessity. There is a need to stabilize the continent, attract investments to create jobs to enable young Africans to have a future in their own countries. 2017 is a crucial year for our relations with Africa. Many political and legislative actions were undertaken at European and international level, for instance under the German Presidency of the G20. To list a few, in May, the High Representative and the European Commission issued a joint communication for a renewed impetus of the Africa-EU Partnership. In June, the Council adopted conclusions stressing the EU’s genuine strategic interest in deepening and strengthening its longstanding partnership with Africa. Conclusions that will also prepare the important Africa-EU Summit to take place end of November in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Furthermore, recently, on September 28, the European Parliament and the Council have adopted the European Fund for Sustainable Development, the heart piece of the EU’s new External Investment Plan.
africa10Over the past months, the European Parliament has also had a crucial role establishing a direct political dialogue with Africa by inviting African leaders such as the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki in May, as well as the President of Ivory Coast, Alassane Ouattara in June, to address the plenary in Strasbourg.The idea to organize a high-level conference on Africa on 22 November, one week before the Summit is to build upon these initiatives, to create a political momentum, and to raise the visibility and role of the European Parliament in Abidjan. This year the focus will be on “Investing in youth”, which has become a key priority for Europe as well as for Africa, in a context of African demographic trends creating major challenges in terms of economic development and job creation, security, political participation and migration. Therefore, youth and gender balance will be at the core of the high-level conference and discussed horizontally across the various panels.
The European Parliament, with its significant delegation including its President, the Chairs of the DEVE, AFET, INTA, SEDE, and DROI Committees and the Chairs of the Delegations to the ACP-EU JPA, the Pan-African Parliament and the relations with South Africa, can be a real added value to both the Parliamentary Summit and the Heads of State and Government Summit. These Members should have a key role in the conference. The aim of the high-level conference is also to use the expertise of the relevant parliamentary committees and delegations to feed in the message conveyed by the European Parliament to both Summits.

Compensation and Disability Conference

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 ottobre 2017

Crazy Streets of Las VegasLas Vegas December 7 at 3:00 p.m. PDT during the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference. One Call Clinical Experts Discuss Key Trends at Virginia Workers’ Compensation Conference. The workers’ compensation industry urgently needs proactive strategies to deal with two growing concerns: the aging workforce and the increased incidence of comorbidities among injured workers. These trends are dramatically impacting claims costs and outcomes, as well as complicating treatment and management of work-related injuries.To discuss the scope of these issues and the impact on workers’ compensation programs, One Call Care Management (One Call) sent two of its clinical experts to deliver presentations at the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference held in Richmond, Virginia this week.Kevin Glennon, RN, vice president of clinical programs at One Call, presented, “Managing the Needs of the Aging Injured Worker,” and Eric Patten, RN, senior director of clinical services, discussed “Strategies to Manage the Pandora’s Box of Comorbid Conditions.”“Older employees are beginning to represent a larger segment of our workforce,” said Glennon. “Physiological changes occur as part of the natural aging process, but they also present safety concerns. For example, older employees may experience loss of muscle, strength and stamina. Their eyesight and hearing may decline, and their sense of balance may be compromised, making aging workers more susceptible to falls.”According to a 2012 National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) study, aging workers experience 50 percent higher medical costs and 25 percent higher indemnity costs on average than their younger counterparts. This is mainly because their injuries are often more severe in nature and require more treatment and recovery time.“Employers can implement clinical strategies and optimize safety in the workplace for aging workers to capitalize on the expertise and strengths of their senior staff, while taking their needs into consideration and preventing injuries from occurring. For example, offering frequent breaks can reduce fatigue and the risk of injury,” added Glennon.“Another key challenge is the increased incidence of comorbid conditions among injured workers,” said Patten. “A comorbidity is another condition or disease occurring at the same time as the work injury. For example, an injured worker may have sustained an ankle fracture, but the healing and recovery may be complicated by the fact that this injured worker also has diabetes.”According to a 2012 NCCI report, the number of claims with a comorbid condition nearly tripled over nine years, and on average, claims with a comorbidity experienced twice the medical costs as otherwise comparable claims.Patten explained that the two trends are related. “As workers age, there is a higher chance that they will have one or more comorbid conditions. Workers’ compensation programs must take a more holistic view of the injured worker’s health status to identify comorbidities early and develop a comprehensive approach to care.” Patten outlined several proactive strategies. Some employers have incorporated onsite health assessments and case management to identify conditions. Others have implemented wellness programs to address employee health and combat common issues, such as a sedentary lifestyle, the need for nutritional counseling and weight management.

La European AIDS Conference chiude facendo il punto sulle sfide epidemiologiche in Europa

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 ottobre 2017

BruxellesBruxelles. L’ultima giornata della 16a edizione della European AIDS Conference ha posto il proprio focus sulle sfide epidemiologiche che sembrano mostrare un quadro invariato nell’Unione Europea e nell’Area Economica Europea, con 29.747 nuovi casi di HIV nel 2015 (6,3 persone su 100.000, rispetto alle 6,6 del 2006). “Osservando i dati, notiamo come i diversi Paesi applichino i vari strumenti di prevenzione e trattamento in modo molto differente, dalla diagnosi in poi. Il risultato è che la prevenzione e l’incidenza dell’HIV nella regione europea variano ampiamente: questa disomogeneità rappresenta la vera sfida per la futura risposta globale europea all’HIV”, dichiara Anastasia Pharris esperta dell’ HIV dell’European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). “Per ridurre il numero delle nuove infezioni, l’Europa deve concentrare tutti i suoi sforzi in tre aree principali: dare priorità ai programmi di prevenzione, facilitare la diffusione del test dell’HIV e, naturalmente, agevolare l’accesso al trattamento per chi è stato diagnosticato”, ha aggiunto la Pharris.
L’HIV “Secondo i più recenti dati sul continuum of care, che l’ECDC sta monitorando in Europa e in Asia Centrale, 1,2 milioni di persone vivono con l’HIV, e solo il 75% di queste ha ricevuto una diagnosi”, spiega Teymur Noori, esperto di HIV dell’European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). “Tra questi casi diagnosticati, circa uno su quattro non sta ricevendo alcun trattamento. Sebbene il trattamento per l’HIV sia efficace, due persone su cinque con HIV non hanno raggiunto la soppressione virale. Questo significa che una percentuale significativa di persone in Europa e in Asia Centrale non beneficia dei trattamenti altamente efficaci per l’HIV, e che la trasmissione dell’HIV continua, soprattutto tra le popolazioni chiave”. Anche l’eradicazione dell’epatite C è stata oggetto di particolare attenzione: si stima infatti che, a livello mondiale, 2,3 milioni di pazienti siano coinfetti da HIV ed HCV. La maggior parte di loro ha una storia di uso di droghe con siringa. Con l’avvento degli antivirali per il trattamento dell’epatite C, l’eliminazione dell’HCV è diventata un obiettivo raggiungibile, nonostante questo la percentuale di persone che raggiungono risposte virologiche dopo la terapia HCV in Europa continua a rimanere bassa, evidenziando gli ostacoli all’accesso alle cure per l’HCV e una forte necessità di miglioramento in quest’area.La prossima European AIDS Conference si terrà a Basilea, in Svizzera nel 2019
