Join us for the digital launch of the 2017/8 GEM Youth Report

The Youth version of the 2017/8 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report, Accountability in education: Meeting our commitments, is now available. It was launched this morning, to mark December 10, the International Human Rights Day. It will be debated during a digital launch event next Tuesday that you are warmly invited to join.

The Youth Report
The 2017/8 GEM Report Accountability in Education: Meeting our commitments shows that youth play a vital role holding governments responsible for equitable quality education.

The fifth GEM Youth Report not only considers how accountability applies to, and can be applied by, young people, but also shares stories from notable young people around the world who are helping to hold their governments to account for quality, equitable education. 

Digital Launch Event 
This digital launch event on 12th December, 4pm GMT, will bring together Dr Koumbou Boly Barry, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Education, GEM Youth Adviser Salam Al-Nukta, Syria, and prominent youth activists including the President of the European Student Union, Helge Schwitters, youth representative of the SDG 4 Steering Committee from Nigeria, Victoria Ibiwoye, Dylan Barry, who headed up the #FeesMustFall student protest economic research task team in South Africa, and Vivian Onano from Kenya.
