About GAW

GAW is an initiative of GCE (the Global Campaign for Education), held simultaneously in more than 100 countries since 2003, with the objective of involving civil society in political advocacy activities that put pressure on governments to comply with international agreements in the field such as Education for All. In Brazil, GAW will be coordinated by the National Campaign for the Right to Education in partnership with other movements, organizations and networks.In 2015, GAW was held internationally from 26 April to 2 May with the theme Vote for Education. More Information at http://www.campaignforeducation.org/en/global-action-week.

This way, the theme will be contextualized by discussion on the first year of the implementation of the PNE.
