27 January 2021
The Geneva Global Hub for Education in Emergencies is the result of a pledge made at the 2019 Global Refugee Forum to make a difference in the education of crisis-affected and displaced children and youth.
Officially launched on 25 January 2021, this new hub will be based in Geneva. It will include in a joint effort representatives from Education Cannot Wait (ECW), the Global Education Cluster (GEC), the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), Switzerland, UNICEF, the University of Geneva, UNESCO and UNHCR. The Hub's objective is to be a catalyst to accelerate progress towards SDG 4 in crises and displacement contexts and help realize the commitments set out in the Global Compact on Refugees.
