Education Transformers, the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative (UNGEI) wants to connect with you!

2020 is the year to step up action to transform education for gender equality and the other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995). We have 10 years left to achieve the SDGs and the only way to deliver is by partnering with youth.

The mission

12 August 2019 was International Youth Day and this year’s theme was Transforming Education. Education has the potential to be transformative. Yet not nearly enough people get to enjoy a quality education, let alone benefit from its gender transformative potential.

The UNGEI partnership launched the Transform Education Mission to help youth Education Transformer-led organisations and networks work together to accelerate action for gender equality in and through education by 2030.
