Global Education Summit: Financing GPE 2021-2025

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) Global Education Summit will take place on July 28 and 29, 2021. A centrepiece of the summit will be the opportunity for leaders to make 5-year pledges to support GPE’s work to help transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta will co-host the summit in a hybrid format with participants attending live sessions on GPE’s virtual platform and a small in-person event in London, if travel restrictions allow.
