Transforming Education Summit, Leaders’ Day

In response to a global crisis in education, and in order to provide a unique opportunity to elevate education to the top of the global political agenda, the Transforming Education Summit is being convened Sep 16-19. Today is “Leaders’ Day”; dedicated to the presentation of National Statements of Commitment by Heads of State and Government in the form of Leaders Roundtables. In addition, thematic sessions are held to place a focus on cross-cutting priorities. Also featured are presentations of the Summit Youth Declaration and the Secretary-General’s Vision Statement.COVID-19 interrupted more than 90 % of the world’s children education – the largest in history. For many, this break may become permanent with consequences to their future (and the generations that follow). Learn more and watch the Summit.
