"What Global Education Can Learn from Public Health: Strengthening a Global Ecosystem to Achieve Quality Education for All", will take place on Monday, September 18, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. The event, co-hosted by the Center for Global Education at Asia Society (CGE), Teach For All, Results for Development, the Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings, and Credit Suisse, will take place at Asia Society's New York headquarters at 725 Park Avenue.
As we mark the two years since the announcement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, this event aims to apply lessons learned from the global health sector to the challenge of providing a quality education for all by 2030. The global health sector has successfully demonstrated that local stakeholders can benefit immensely from a stronger and better coordinated set of global actors, bringing together a world of knowledge, experience, and deep expertise for local benefit. Reflection on current investments in global education reveals that there is an opportunity and a critical need to increase attention to these issues.
The event will feature an overview of key lessons from global health lead by Results for Development, updates from the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) on findings from an ongoing mapping and analysis of the global education ecosystem, and a panel discussion on the implication of these findings and lessons for the education sector featuring Wendy Kopp, founder of Teach For All and other leaders in education.
We'd be delighted to have you join us for the discussion! Please RSVP here.
