CODE is honoured to have been invited by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO and Global Affairs Canada to co-host the Canadian launch of the 2016 UNESCO Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report. The GEM Reports will monitor the state of education within the framework of UNESCO’s newly released 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. This first report in the series will focus on the theme of Education for people and planet – Creating sustainable futures for all.
The event will take place on Friday, October 28th at the Canada Council for the Arts, in Ottawa, and will offer an opportunity for stakeholders in Canadian and International education and development sectors to participate in a panel discussion on what the GEM Report 2016 means to Canada.
CODE is thrilled that three of its CODE on Campus representatives are participating as “youth respondents” in this Canadian launch of the GEM Report and our Executive Director, Scott Walter will be in attendance to deliver closing remarks.
