The messages of the 2019 GEM Report are reaching all corners of the world

tmue20181120a144.jpgThe 2019 GEM Report launched on Tuesday, with 12 events already, and another seven in the pipeline for next week. Almost 2,000 people attended the events, and 4,600 watched the global launch event online.  In the first two days since launch, 5,700 full English reports were downloaded, equivalent to more than two a minute, testament to how timely the topic is. This does not include the download figures for the eleven summary versions also available in different languages.

Organisations from across the spectrum of migration and displacement debated and discussed the Report this week, from UNHCR, the Migration Policy Institute, the IOM, the National Council for Nomadic Education in Kenya, UNICEF, Care International, IGAD, the National Education Union (NEU) in London and teachers, including Mandy Manning, US teacher of the year (below).

Twelve ministers, vice ministers and high-ranking representatives from Education Ministries took part from Cambodia, Chad, Germany, India, Kenya, Latvia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Portugal, South-Sudan and Thailand. Moderators from Thailand’s NBT World and Al Jazeera English led panellists through engaging discussions.

Video messages of support were posted by Justin van Fleet from the Education Commission, Kevin Watkins from Save the Children, Alice Albright from GPE, Baela Raza Jamil from Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi, Yasmine Sherif from ECW, Fadi Halliso, co-founder and CEO of Basmeh & Zeitooneh, Andria Zafirakou, Teacher and 2018 Global Teacher Prize winner and Delphine Dorsi from the Right to Education Initiative, with more to follow.

The Government of Germany announced a pledge of 15 million euros for Education Cannot Wait using the platform of our Report launch in Berlin. This pledge makes Germany the third largest donor to fund, having made 31 million euros in contributions to date.

The topic and findings in the Report also sparked the media’s interest, resulting in around 900 articles in just three days, each covering different themes and issues relevant to their regions.

Among these articles, the themes they covered included:
