A Cambridge event with the Yidan Prize Foundation

Creating an Equitable Future through Education:
An event showcasing transformational work in education research and practice in the context of COVID and climate change, with a focus on girls’ education.

Yidan Prize Poster with title Creating an Equitable Future through Education

The Yidan Prize Foundation, the University of Cambridge and CAMFED are co-hosting a conference at Jesus College on October 7th 2021 to showcase transformational work in education research and practice, with a focus on girls’ education.

The theme of the event will be the global challenges facing education today, as we consider the inequalities exposed by the pandemic and the disruption exacerbated by climate change, which disproportionately affects women and girls. There will be a focus on the efforts and partnerships to find solutions, in reaching the most marginalised young people and in re-imagining quality education for all.

The conference will bring together global policymakers, educationalists, business leaders, foundation heads, leading academics and activists. The Honourable Julia Gillard AC, 27th Prime Minister of Australia and Chair of the Global Partnership for Education, and Princess Laurentien, Director of the Yidan Prize Foundation, are among the keynote speakers alongside Yidan Prize laureates.

CAMFED and the REAL Centre will announce a major new partnership to combine research and practice in education in sub-Saharan Africa. This will highlight the work underway to expand the Learner Guide programme as an effective model to support children’s learning, particularly for marginalised children during periods of disruption. This work is taking place with the support of the Yidan Prize.

The event will be followed by a high-level reception and dinner hosted by the Fitzwilliam Museum. This will be an opportunity to highlight the presentation of the Yidan Prize for Education Development to CAMFED. A key theme of this part of the event will be the link between girls’ education and climate change, as a global priority and focus of CAMFED’s work.
