Danilo Pérez supports UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition

On 18 May 2020, UNESCO Artist for Peace Danilo Pérez highlights in a video UNESCO’s work to ensure #LearningNeverStops

Danilo Pérez emphasized the major implications of the global health pandemic on education for children and young people around the world. “In the face of massive school closings, we must ensure continuity, inclusion, and equity.” He outlined that over a billion children and young people have been affected by the closing of schools and universities. As a response, UNESCO launched the Global Education Coalition – an initiative that aims to ensure that all children have access to remote education during these unprecedented times.

Danilo Pérez further underlined that the pandemic has exacerbated inequalities in access to education, and thus UNESCO is also placing importance on maintaining access to education for migrants and refugees. “Now is the time… we need to respond to Covid-19 and define the future of education.”
