Two new publications
Partnering for prosperity: Education for green and inclusive growth, an extract from the 2016 GEM Report, launched last month at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. It describes the transformative role that education and lifelong learning can play in fostering green and inclusive growth. The Director-General wrote an opinion piece on the WEF website, How do we skill our kids for tomorrow’s green economy? leading to over 3000 downloads of the publication in just a week.
Last month, the GEM Report also released its first policy paper for 2017 in order to feed into an international symposium in South Korea on School Violence and Bullying: From Evidence to Action, with more than 250 participants from 70 countries. The paper, Let’s decide how to monitor school-related violence, looks at an array of measuring tools for school-related violence and the lack of harmony between them. It suggests three options for finding convergence across the tools in order to have a more comparable picture of the prevalence of the issue and help feed into the thematic indicator for Target 4a.
