Education enables development and makes all other SDGs possible, training future generations for the workforces that they will enter. But Covid-19 has changed the way in which learning happens around the world and many children, including young girls, still do not have access to quality education. This session will look at some of the crucial questions that surround education worldwide at the moment, including how we can be successful in providing every child on the globe with an education that will prepare them for future requirements and expectations across job industries. We will also look at some of the leading new developments and initiatives in the education sector, including some of the new online tools.
