EFA Global Monitoring Report 2012: 'Youth and Skills: Putting Education to Work'

With just over a month to go until the launch of our upcoming 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report, we are delighted to announce its title: 'Youth and Skills: Putting Education to Work'.


We are also excited to reveal its cover, seen here, designed by Sarah Wilkins. The illustrations depict the different stages of learning that young people can reach on their way to acquiring skills.


Information on the 45 launch events that have already been confirmed worldwide can be found on our website.


Make your voice heard! We are looking for young people to help us write a youth version of our Report

Peace Child International and UNESCO's Education for All Global Monitoring Report Team are looking for a Task Force of young people aged 15-30 to help us produce a young people's summary of this year's landmark Report on Youth, Skills and Work. We hope that young writers and artists can help bring the messages and data in the Report to life, putting them into their own words, together with personal reports, poems, stories and opinion pieces, paintings, cartoons and photographs - so that everyone can understand it.


Your contributions will be read by young people and many others (often senior politicians) - around the world. And you, and your school or group, will be listed in the book as a Task Force Member. Further - if you send in a particularly good story, opinion piece or illustration - you may be invited to the Editor's Meeting in the United Kingdom at the start of October with all expenses paid.


If you would like to participate, write back by September 8 to Willow Hewitt, at: editor@peacechild.org


Read more about how to apply and find blogs written by young people over the course of the last year explaining how education is - or is not - preparing them for the world of work.


Please share this opportunity with your friends and family via Facebook and Twitter too:

Blogging Series for the Tenth Anniversary of the Global Monitoring Report

In celebration of the tenth year of the Edcuation for All Global Monitoring Report, we hope you have not been missing out on the series on our World Education Blog recapping the findings of previous reports on conflict, early childhood, gender and other key education topics. This week, Anna Robinson-Pant, Professor at the University of East Anglia, reflects on literacy progress since the 2006 EFA Global Monitoring Report, Literacy for Life, was published.


Stay tuned as guest bloggers contribute their thoughts on how much education has changed since the first report was published a decade ago, as we work towards the launch of the tenth edition of our report on October 16.


Thank you.
