UNESCO presents in Barcelona the new report “Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and challenges” with the collaboration of GUNi


The new report appears as a mechanism to assess global progress in education and setting the important elements for shaping the post-2015 global educational agenda.

Next Thursday, May 7th UNESCO submits in Barcelona the report “Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and challenges”.  The event will take place at 18:30 pm in the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site in Barcelona. The report will be presented by Aaron Benavot, the Director of the Education for All Global Monitoring Report (EFA GMR).

This act is part of a worldwide release of this report which was launched last April 9 and has been presented in different cities of the world such as New York, Paris and New Delhi. In Barcelona the event will be promoted by the Edu Post2015, an initiative carried out by UNESCOCAT in partnership with Jaume Bofill Foundation which aims to actively engage Catalonia in the debate and reflection about the new objectives and challenges of the international education agenda. This initiative is also supported by GUNi, the General Directorate of Multilateral and European Affairs from the Generalitat of Catalunya and Obra Social "La Caixa”.

This report is published in an important moment of reflection and analysis, since 2015 is the year were the international community had its sights set at the Millennium Development Goals. In that sense, there is a call for a new political agenda for the next fifteen years, after approving the Sustainable Development Goals next September in order to coordinate and integrate both frames.

The main objectives of “Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and challenges” are to provide a feedback regarding the six goals established at Dakar’s World Education Forum in 2000; take stock of policies and practices carried out by stakeholders worldwide in order to improve the education quality; and finally, provide recommendations and set up achievements and challenges to postulate an efficient post-2015 global education agenda.
