Launch of the Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies
The Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies is a pledge issued at the 2019 Global Refugee Forum by ten key institutions to join forces and collectively make a difference for the education of crisis-affected and displaced children and youth. The Hub will be launched on the occasion of the 2021 International Day of Education. A high-level panel will exchange with participants on how the Geneva Global Hub can be a catalyst for change to respond to children's education needs in contexts affected by conflict, violence, disasters and displacement.

The Webinar language will be in English, interpretation will be provided in Arabic, French, Portuguese, Spanish, as well as sign language.
