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 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.
