The United Kingdom and Kenya will co-host a high-level summit next year to lead global action to educate every child, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President Uhuru Kenyatta announced.
Landmark global education summit to take place in the UK in mid-2021, in the year of the UK’s G7 Presidency.
The co-hosts – UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta - urge world leaders to invest in getting children into school and build back better from coronavirus.
The 2021 summit will raise funds for the Global Partnership for Education, which today launches a call to action to raise at least US$5 billion for education in the world’s most vulnerable countries.
Julia Gillard, former Prime Minister of Australia and GPE Board Chair said:
“We're launching our most ambitious and urgent campaign yet.
We must seize this opportunity to make sure that no child is left behind.
Our message to world leaders is simple: Raise your hand. Fund education.”
