At Bett in January 2020, the Global Education Council came together on stage for the first time, sharing their vision and manifesto for the future of education. As part of a brand-new article series: 'The GEC Manifesto for education in practice,' the GEC members highlight how each of the manifesto areas is being actualised and explore how we can secure and drive education for all. You can also learn more about our GEC members when we are 'in conversation with...' to hear about their thoughts on the future of education.
