Partnering for Education can be found here
The Education for Development summit in Oslo represents an opportunity to revitalize the global education agenda, based on the commitments made at the World Education Forum in Korea. Eight Norwegian Civil Society Organizations and the Telenor Group invite all interested parties to setting the scene on 6th of July through a side event to the Oslo Summit of Education for Development. Partnering for Education aim to bring together different voices and encourage government, organizations, businesses, academia, media, children and teachers to take part in the discussions.
We will explore means for equity in education, leveraging digital and innovative solutions for closing the education gap and the financing architecture of education in emergencies.
While acknowledging the need for increased investments in education, we will look into financing mechanisms and policies to respond to the growing inequalities in education. Even if the number of out of school children has dropped by almost 50 % since the millennium shift, there are still 58 million children not in school, and too many of those in school do not learn and thrive.
Technology provides access to information, learning and collaboration. Partnering for Education will be a meeting place to discuss the future of digital education and new innovative solutions, and also challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
A particularly vulnerable group of children are living in conflicts and crisis, and they constitute a growing share of out of school children. Still it is difficult to get funding for education in emergencies. A panel is invited to bring the discussion on how to secure education in such contexts further.
The participants at the side event and the summit are invited to a reception at the Oslo City Hall in the evening.
Registration is already open.
