Webinars on COVID-19 education response

More on UNESCO's COVID-19 Education Response

 

UNESCO Headquarters, field offices and institutes are organizing regular webinars on the educational dimensions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those webinars provide a venue for stakeholders working in education to share practices, ideas and resources about country responses to school closures and other challenges stemming from the global health crisis.

The webinars address a range of topics with a view to:

  • maintaining the continuity of learning, especially for underprivileged children and youth; and
  • ensuring all students return to school as they reopen
