The Global Education First Initiative was launched in September 2012 by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon. The aims of the initiative are to raise the political profile of education, strengthen the global movement to achieve quality education, and generate additional and sufficient funding for education.
The Youth Advocacy Group (YAG) members provide strategic advice to the youth representative in the High Level Steering Committee, to help strengthen momentum and increase support for the Global Education First Initiative.
The YAG has launched a call for new members to join. Representing various regions around the world, the group is currently composed of 12 members who are leading grassroots initiatives at the national and global levels to promote education and global citizenship.
