UNGA77: Italian Minister Bianchi at the UN for Transforming Education Summit

NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 17 – “Education has a duty to transform society, to build up communities. School is the driver. We need a school based on inclusion”, Italy’s Minister for Education, Patrizio Bianchi, said today on the second day of the three-day Transforming Education Summit which opened in New York yesterday ahead of the High Level segment of the 77th General Assembly.

The Summit is being convened in response to a global crisis in education – one of equity and inclusion, quality and relevance – which is having a devastating impact on the futures of children and youth worldwide. It is providing a unique opportunity to elevate education to the top of the global political agenda and to mobilize action, ambition, solidarity and solutions to recover pandemic-related learning losses and sow the seeds to transform education in a rapidly changing world.

Education, Objective 4 of the 2030 Agenda, ha suffered during COVID.  “More than 90 percent of the world’s children have suffered disruptions in their education during the pandemic, with the picture further worsened by conflicts, food and energy insecurity,” said the Italian Ambassador to the UN Maurizio Massari illustrating the main events of the High Level week.

Bianchi is representing Italy to the Summit. He spoke during the “Solutions Day” aiming to provide a platform for partners to mobilize support to launch or scale up initiatives connected to the Summit Thematic Action tracks, and will address the Assembly during the day devoted to the national statements. Also attending the Summit is the Assistant Director General for UNESCO, Stefania Giannini, a former Italian Minister for Education. She closed today’s proceeding with former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. (@OnuItalia)
