Global Action Week is the most campaign intensive part of the GCE calendar with national educational coalitions preparing for up to nine months in advance to ensure that the week has maximum impact on decision makers. Since its inception, Global Action Week participation has grown from 2 million people in 2003 to over 15 million in 2010.

Here are some reasons to get involved:

Education is possibly the best tool we have for tackling poverty. When someone gets educated, they will eventually earn more and be better able to support their family. 

A third of all children out of school have a disability. Without education the cycle between disability and poverty will never be broken.

More than half of all out of school children live in areas affected by war and conflict. Education can bring protection and stability, and the potential to start building a more peaceful and prosperous society.
