1. Responding to the COVID-19 education emergency: The Save Our Education campaign calls on all stakeholders to keep learning alive while schools are closed through inclusive, quality distance learning, ensuring children can return safely to school and using this moment to build back inclusive, safe and resilient education systems that can better respond to crisis in the future.
2. Education in emergencies: All stakeholders must work together to increase financing and prioritisation of education in emergencies, and to improve coordination, policies, and plans which deliver protective, safe, inclusive, and good-quality learning environments in crisis contexts.
3. Education for refugee children: The international community and refugee hosting country governments must ensure that all refugee children have access to good-quality learning opportunities by: closing the financing gap; developing and implementing inclusive policies and plans; and improving the quality of educational provision to refugees and host communities.
4. Financing: Governments need to increase the amount they are spending on education. International donors need to increase their aid budgets and spend on education and need to spend more multilaterally. This includes financing the Global Partnership for Education, the Education Cannot Wait fund for education in emergencies, and supporting the establishment of an International Financing Facility for Education.
5. Girls Education: To strengthen learning and wellbeing for the most marginalised girls, and ensure all children are empowered equally through education, governments must address the intersecting barriers to girls’ education by: making teaching and learning gender-transformative; establishing girl-friendly, safe, inclusive, and empowering learning environments; strengthening community support for girls’ education and building gender-transformative education policies and systems.
