The Charlevoix Education Initiative

June 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Education is a fundamental human right and a cornerstone for sustainable development. The Government of Canada has been a long-standing leader in education. Most notably, Canada led the G7 Charlevoix Education Initiative, which committed to investing in projects aimed at enhancing access to quality education for girls, adolescent girls and women, particularly in the context of conflict and crises, which leveraged $3.2 billion from the G7 and other leaders at the G7 2018 Summit.

Alongside its NGO and CSO partners, Canada’s own $400 million investment has yielded important results, reaching the most marginalized in communities impacted by conflict, climate, and COVID-19. As we continue to navigate the complexities of educational programming in such environments, it’s crucial to leverage evidence and experience to inform our policies and practices effectively.

Join us on June 20 as we explore successes, challenges, and lessons learned from education programming in crisis contexts. We will highlight research conducted by the Canadian International Education Policy Working Group’s (CIEPWG)Charlevoix Community of Practice, which brings together education practitioners from various organizations funded through the Charlevoix Education Initiative.
