Just one week to go…… Each year the Global Campaign for Education leads a Global Action Week, with a specific theme. This year’s theme is “Accountability for SDG4 through Citizen Participation”. The campaign focuses on holding governments and the international community to account for implementing the full SDG4 agenda – asking governments to “Keep Your Promises”. Governments will be asked to honour the pledges they have made to education funding, for instance, those pledges made during the recent Global Partnership for Education funding replenishment conference.
The Global Campaign for Education is calling on governments to:
- develop credible roadmaps for implementation of the full SDG4 agenda, with clear mechanisms for transparency, allowing for active meaningful participation of civil society;
- halt the criminalisation and shrinking of civil society spaces, both nationally and internationally;
- strengthen public systems and state capacities to ensure that education is free, quality, and equitable and reject turning towards low fee/”affordable” private schooling as an answer to the education crisis.
There are lots of things you can do to help support the Global Action Week. Look at the ‘Take action’ page on the GAW website for more information.
