Ahigh-level meeting, co-hosted by Di­rec­tor- Gen­eral of UNESCO Au­drey Azoulay, was re­cently or­gan­ised by Ed­u­ca­tion Above All Foun­da­tion (EAA) in Paris. The event was at­tended by Her High­ness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chair­per­son of EAA and UN Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals Ad­vo­cate.

The ses­sion ex­plored ways of tack­ling the grow­ing ed­u­ca­tion crisis, which is hold­ing back 63 mil­lion pri­mary-aged chil­dren world­wide and threat­en­ing eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

“I first stood be­fore the United Na­tions 15 years ago to ex­press my sup­port for our shared vi­sion: to pro­vide qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion to chil­dren ev­ery­where. I have come here to­day to tell you that this shared vi­sion is now a real pos­si­bil­ity,” said HH Sheikha Moza.

“As the world grap­ples with crises, I have come here to­day to tell you that if we want to counter the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of crises, ed­u­ca­tion must be­come our first pri­or­ity. If we wish for peace and pros­per­ity for all, we must en­sure ed­u­ca­tion for all,” she added.
