Each year the Global Education & Skills Forum brings together world leaders from the public, private, and social sectors seeking solutions to achieving education, equity, and employment for all. Over two days, 1,600 delegates at the GESF share, debate, and shape new ways for education to transform our world. An initiative of the Varkey Foundation, the Global Education & Skills Forum is an essential platform for collaboration and problem solving, taking “how it should be” forward into innovative, multi-stakeholder “how do we get there?”
