Learners’ Voice at the World Literacy Summit
Learners’ Voice is more active than ever on the international conference scene. Three Learners’ Voice students participated in the India Youth Forum, from March 29 to April 1, New Delhi, India. Now, two other WISE Learners will be attending the World Literacy Summit, on April 1-4, in Oxford, UK: Al Jawhara Al-Thani (Qatar) and Noor Doukmak (USA).
This international event brings together experts and decision-makers in the fields of literacy and development, coming from a variety of sectors and countries around the world. It will be addressing a wide range of issues related to literacy and its correlations with poverty, heath, and economic growth. Participants will discuss what measures need to be taken to reach the 796 million illiterate people across the globe. The Summit will culminate in the launch of the Oxford Declaration, to be prepared jointly by the delegates of the conference, that will propose long-term, practical solutions to the global literacy crisis.
