There were 29 young education advocates to participate in the GPE Replenishment Conference last week in Brussels. At the end of two days packed with conversations and meetings with close to 800 other participants, they posed for a group photo with Julia Gillard and Alice Albright, respectively Board Chair and CEO of the Global Partnership for Education. During the conference, youth asked participants how to ensure that young voices are heard in education policy circles and gathered a lot of ideas that they will take forward among their constituencies.
