Hey Education Transformers! 


Education shifts power. We demand a power shift. Were you at our Power Shift? We called on G7 Leaders to fund education that centres gender equality, climate justice and to create an accountability framework for youth partnership. Education International shares the outcome here.

Our work does not end there, we must continue to demand a power shift. 

This year is a big one for gender equality and education. There was the G7 in June, the GPE Replenishment is coming up in July and COP 26 is in November.

These difficult times are devastating, but are also nothing but proof of what we are saying. We need a robust, democratic and gender responsive education system that works for us. We have partnered with Plan International on an advocacy campaign “Education Shifts Power”  to call on governments to fund gender transformative education and climate justice.

We’ve had enough. We call for education funding and REAL partnerships

GPE Replenishment 

In the lead up to the Global Partnership for Education Replenishment we are demanding the following: 

  • We cannot underestimate the importance of youth leadership in shaping decisions made about their education.
     
  • We call on world leaders to include young people in efforts to transform education systems, including meeting with youth leaders and youth-led movements to ensure their voices are heard in all key decisions that affect them and their futures. 

You can sign up to attend the Global Education Summit virtually here
