First Ladies Forum on Education



Education is a universal human right and a recognized condition for fulfillment of full human potential and progress towards responsible global citizenship. Significant progress has been made towards universal education throughout the past decade, especially by developing nations, yet according to a recent release from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and this year’s Education for All Global Monitoring Report (GMR), there are still over 57 million primary age children and 63 million adolescents out of school, and about 781 million illiterate adults globally. In the context of the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF 2015) organized by UNESCO in Incheon, South Korea in May which compiled to find solutions to ensure equitable and inclusive quality education for all by the year 2030, the First Ladies Forum on Education will bring forward leaders in both education and gender equality to discuss endowing youth of the world with the resource and opportunities needed to accelerate achievement of Millennium Development Goals and development of the post-2015 agenda of the United Nations.
