Global Action Week 2018: Accountability for SDG4 through Citizen Participation
GCE’s Global Action Week for Education in 2018 takes place between the 22nd and 28th of April, following up on last year’s theme of accountability for SDG4 and active citizen participation. GAWE 2018, entitled “Accountability for SDG4 through Citizen Participation” will continue focusing on holding governments and the international community to account for implementing the full SDG4 agenda – asking governments to “Keep Your Promises”.
After the Global Partnership for Education’s (GPE) Financing Conference at the start of 2018, where developing country governments, donor countries and various partners pledged to increase funds to education, it is time for governments to prove they are actually working towards financing public, equitable, inclusive and free education – it is time to act. That is why we are calling for governments to “Keep Your Promises” – pledges made towards funding SDG4 must be implemented effectively, ensuring that children and adults around the world can receive quality public education.
