UN Call for Comment: Businesses and Education

A Call for Comment is now open for all education stakeholders to provide input on how the private sector can contribute to transformational change in education. The Business Engagement Framework for Education and Learning is a joint initiative by UNESCO, UNICEF, the Office of the UN Special Envoy for Global Education, and the UN Global Compact in support of the UN Secretary-General's Global Education First Initiative.

According to Global Education First, in order to achieve the three priorities of ensuring every child is in school, improving the quality of learning, and fostering global citizenship, it is essential to build broad partnerships. This includes cooperation with the business community. The objective of the framework is to provide guidance for sustainable engagement to create an educated society by the private sector.

Call for Comment closes on 15 August 2013.
