Brussels Summit for Global Education

Today the Global Partnership for Education held a summit in Brussels, gathering hundreds of global education leaders, ministers and representatives in a pledge to raise $3.5 billion in educational aid.

The summit follows the publication of a recent report by UNESCO, which shows a catastrophic decrease in financial aid to education over the past 4 years.

At today’s Second Global Partnership for Education Replenishment Campaign, nations and independent donors were urged to renew their contributions with aims of getting all children into education. Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani schoolgirl and education activist shot by the Taliban, was also in attendance.
