Summary and 2020 Theme

In January each year, the Education World Forum brings together delegates representing over two-thirds of the world’s population to debate future education policy. The event comprises three days of insight and inspiration from pioneers, policy makers and experts, with many sessions given by education ministers themselves as part of an honest assessment of education’s common issues and challenges.

The 2020 Theme is One generation – what does it take to transform education?
