Register to join this webinar: Twelve years’ education for every Commonwealth child. Finding the money.

What is the role of the Commonwealth in supporting education funding post-COVID? 

During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, 1.6 billion learners were out of school and school doors were shuttered for 168 million children for an entire year. Amidst this, it is education budgets that will feel the greatest impact.

Two-thirds of low- and lower-middle-income countries have cut their public education budgets since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, it is now more critical than ever to advocate for resilient and gender-transformative education financing – the Commonwealth should be a leading platform to support education financing.

Join a webinar on Thursday 29th April 2021 (time 12pm UTC+1) to hear experts in the sector discuss these issues ahead of CHOGM 2021.
