Transform Education

Power Shift imageYoung activists are demanding a power shift. We have the knowledge, we have the numbers, we have the lived experience. Now it is time to have our voice heard and to co-create a resilient education system that works for us and centres gender equality.

After a year of interrupted education, we cannot let girls fall further behind. Governments around the world have the chance to step up and take action to fund education that challenges gender norms and promotes climate education. With this they have the power to stop the climate emergency and contribute to a more gender-just, peaceful and sustainable world. We no longer want decisions made about us without us. Governments have to use their power to stand for youth, stand in solidarity with us, and stand up so we can take a seat at the table.
