As part of the “Raise your hand” global campaign, GPE organized a national launch on November 6 in Spain to raise awareness on the importance of continued investment in global education, especially following the negative social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was organized in collaboration with ProFuturo (Telefonica Foundation and La ”Caixa“ Foundation) and the Campaña Mundial por la Educación (GCE Spain).
Participants discussed the opportunities of education, how to combat the learning crisis and Spain’s role in strengthening global education efforts. Alejandra Agudo, Journalist for El País’ development section ‘Planeta Futuro’, moderated the event.
The discussion started with a keynote speech by Ángeles Moreno Bau, Secretary of State for International Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Spain.
