Global education dinner

with remarks by Ian Davis

This is the second in our series of Global Education Dinners, co-hosted with Amanda Jenkins, Frédéric de Mevius, Ian Davis, Dame Julia Cleverdon, Paul Drechsler, Paul Fletcher, Stephen Brenninkmeijer and Surinder Arora.

This will be a unique opportunity to hear from Ian Davis and others who are working to transform the education landscape. During this working dinner we will be engaging guests in a discussion about the global learning crisis that is holding back millions of young people from fulfilling their potential, and what we can do about it at home and abroad.
