The Transforming Education Summit, convened by the UN Secretary-General, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for key stakeholders to come together and map a new path for education, and youth engagement is at the heart of the Transforming Education Summit.
At the Pre-Summit at UNESCO in Paris on 28-30 June 2022, UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed called on youth to rally towards building a global movement for education transformation.
The Pre-Summit, and especially the Youth Forum on 28 June 2022, generated momentum and amplified young people's voices and ideas in decision-making and in the lead up to the Summit in September 2022. It created space for inter-generational dialogue between youth and key decision-makers, ensuring that young people's aspirations for the futures of education are brought to the forefront.
Young people all over the world are encouraged to continue engaging in the Summit of the Future process and sustain a movement for Education.
Young people all over the world were encouraged to shape and influence this crucial document.
Documents and discussions can be found on the Youth Declaration discussion forum. The forum page is also a space for posting your thoughts and ideas.
