Bi-Bright attended at the Global Education First Initiative´s anniversary
Bi-Bright, Mastervision brand in the North-American market, participated in the first anniversary of the Global Education First Initiative, which took place in New York City, on 25th of September.
Bi-Bright´s participation in this event aimed to strengthen its focus on introducing tools and pedagogical tools to improve productivity, quality of care and education, inside and outside the classroom.
The event brought together governments, youth, activists, education leaders, and artists at the UN Headquarters on 25 September. The event was convened by the GEFI Secretariat and UNESCO and moderated by UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Gordon Brown.
During the event, global leaders stress the need for more leadership and better coordination of funds to deliver on the global education promise, because although progress has been made to achieve global education goals, 57 million children remain out of school and 250 million children can´t read or write even while attending school.
In a video message to mark the anniversary, UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, said that “Our efforts are bearing fruit. Education is regaining its rightful place on the global agenda... But we must do more – much more. Educating the poorest and most marginalized children will require bold political leadership and increased financial commitment”.
