On 28 February 2011, the United Nations Economic and Social Council convened a meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York entitled “Partnering with the philanthropic community to promote education for all.” Participants hope to accelerate progress in achieving education for all children around the world by engaging supporters from the private sector and philanthropic world to help fund and promote global education initiatives.

UNICEF Radio moderator Amy Costello spoke with Professor Jeffrey Sachs, who moderated the closing session of the event, on the role of philanthropy in achieving education for all and about the transformative effects that technology is having in classrooms across the globe.
