Education is a fundamental human right, yet only 70 percent of children worldwide are in school. How can we bridge this gap to reach the goal of free quality education for all by 2030? The Nordic countries are among the world leaders when it comes to supporting education in low- and middle-income countries globally. They also have the most experience to share in providing free public education for their own populations. In this episode, we look at how education is key to shaping our future and why education should take priority on political agendas worldwide. This episode comes from an online Nordic Talks event, arranged by the Danish development NGO Oxfam IBIS and the Norwegian Embassy in Ethiopia.
