This October, decision makers and leaders all over the world went Back to School to learn from students about what we can do to build a world where all young people are free, safe and educated. Beginning the 16th October, the week that marks the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we are asked that those who represent us to not forget the world’s 100 million most marginalised children.
Welcome! This website has everything you need to take part in Decision Makers Back to School Day, 2017. On the Around the World page, you can see the success of events in schools across five continents.
