Global Education & Skills Forum 2019
Over two days, more than 2,000 delegates at the Global Education & Skills Forum share, debate and shape new ways for education to transform our world. The Forum culminates in the awarding of the Global Teacher Prize, which recognises the exceptional work that teachers do around the world.
An initiative of the Varkey Foundation, the Global Education & Skills Forum is an essential platform for collaboration and problem solving - taking ‘how it should be’ into innovative, multi-stakeholder ‘how do we get there together?’
