ABOUT THE EDUCATION WEEK

In honour of International Literacy Day on 8 September, Generation Global will be celebrating education in September by organising an Education Dialogue Week (28 September - 1 October 2021). This is an online event for young people ages 13-17 to learn about UN SDG 4 (Quality Education) through the experience of intercultural dialogue. There is no cost to join the Education Week.
