The next months will be crucial for the Think20 think tank community to produce policy recommendations in view of the Italian G20 Summit in October. This series of T20-associated events (closed-door and public Roundtables) is intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the T20 by adding new voices of international experts, civil servants, and representatives of the business community. ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and Fundação Getulio Vargas are co-promoting the T20 Associated-event “The Future of Education after Covid. Leaving no one behind”, in cooperation with CIPPEC, Comexi, Fedesarrollo, OECD, and in association with UCL Institute of Education. This Public Event is preceded by a closed-door Workshop by invitation only (see the programme), intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the Task Force (TF) “Social Cohesion and the future of Welfare Systems”.
The pandemic has hit the global society hard and schools have experienced severe disruptions. Even if digitalisation has provided a partial solution to this issue, students coming from financially fragile households are at higher risk of being pushed out of the education system. Policies need to be carefully designed so that no one is left behind. How can education feature at the core of post-Covid recovery? Can digital technologies lead to a new paradigm for future education? Which role for the G20 in ensuring universal access to training and schooling, in particular for vulnerable social groups?
The programme of the public event can be found here.

Ispi has always been careful to ensure an inclusive working environment and to be attentive to gender diversity and to the plurality of voices represented in its initiatives. When this is not reflected in one of our publications or events, it is due to the unavailability of the consulted experts to participate or to challenges in identifying specific profiles in our network.
