In 2015, world leaders committed to the most ambitious global development agenda in history. For education, this includes the pledge to 'ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030' - regardless of personal, social or political context.

Such ambitious goals need to be paid for. Since education is central to the achievement of all the development goals, failing to make adequate investments in education puts the success of the entire new agenda at risk.

Investment in education now will help to fund a better future tomorrow.

That's why we're asking governments to Fund the Future this Global Action Week for Education, 24 - 30 April 2016.
