Highlighted on the issues of education and skills development, participants suggested that GAC should:

  • Prioritize education to reflect Canada’s considerable expertise in education and its critical role in achieving  human rights and the 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

  • Play a key role in advancing the empowerment of girls and gender equality in and through education, including through targeted efforts to break down the barriers to participation.
