Education for all by 2030? - DG DevCo conference

On Tuesday 24th February, the European Commission’s External Cooperation Inforpoint held a conference on the topic of “Education for all by 2030”. Ms. Véronique Lorenzo, Head of unit for Education, Health, Research and Culture in DG DevCo introduced the subject. Ms. Karen Schroh, Senior Donor Relations Specialist at the Global Partnership for Education introduced the work of the GPE, which since its establishment in 2002, has partnered with 60 developing countries to promote education. GPE noted that investment in education is win-win as it achieves linkages with other sectors and has a strong cross-sectoral impact e.g. direct linkages with educating girls and GDP growth. GPE recognized that unfortunately the Millennium Development Goals were not an equity focused agenda. GPE believes that education financing should be higher on the agenda  and they support government-led initiatives in the field of education. Ms. Schroh highlighted Nelson Mandela’s statement that  “no country can really develop unless its citizens are educated”.
