Therefore, the 7th World Assembly offers civil society and government representatives, education experts, activists and journalists an opportunity to discuss and debate pressing and emerging issues, agree and clarify collective positions, learn from and exchange with each other, and set priorities and direction for the global education movement.
The 7th World Assembly will convene over 180 delegates from over 130 countries, comprising representatives from grassroots organisations, teachers’ unions, children’s and youth rights organisations, NGOs, parents’ associations, youth and students and community groups.
The multi-day event will also focus on strengthening the education movement and adopting a new strategic plan for the GCE movement and new leadership to provide refreshed leadership for the movement.
