This event was organized in Paris on 28‐30 June 2022. A Global Engagement Day on 28 June included technical meetings on Thematic Action Tracks and engagements with key stakeholders. The High‐level segment consisting of Ministerial and Stakeholder engagementtook place from 29‐30 June 2022.
The overall objective of the Pre‐Summit was to harness the evolving discussions on transforming education, elaborate initial content and establish a shared vision and suggested actions for the Summit, and generate greater momentum in the lead up to September. More specifically, the Pre‐Summit aimed to provide an inclusive and open forum for:
- Countries having advanced their national consultations to present preliminary outcomes of their consultations and share key elements of their commitment to transform education to inspire other countries to come forward with bold commitments and actions at the Summit in September.
- Each Thematic Action Track to present spotlight initiatives emerging from the initial discussion papers and explore potential coalitions and partnerships to bring these to scale, in the lead up to the Pre‐Summit.
- Creating momentum and serving as a key milestone towards a global movement for education, showcasing countries and education leaders, offering a platform for children, young people, students, parents, and teachers to share their vision and make their voices heard, and allowing stakeholders to come together and join forces to transform education.
