What is the Global Campaign for Education?
The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a civil society movement working to end the global education crisis. Our mission is to make sure that States act now to deliver the right of everyone to a free, quality public education.
The Global Campaign for Education in April of each year organizes a week of campaigning on education called Global Action Week

Global Action Week
Global Action Week is one of the major focal points for the education movement. It provides every national and regional education campaign with an opportunity to highlight one area of the Education For All agenda and make targeted efforts to achieve change on the ground, with the added support of education campaigners and millions of members of the public worldwide joining together for the same cause.
The year 2015 presents us with a crucial opportunity to demand the realisation of the right to education for all EFA.
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.
