World Assembly

GCE is a membership body and our work and policy are determined by our members. Our supreme governing body is the GCE General Assembly. It is held every three years and is a unique gathering of education campaigners and advocates from over 100 countries.

As well as debating a wide range of issues relating to universal education, the meetings will also determine the shape of the campaign for the next few years. All fully-subscribed members are entitled to attend the World Assembly and to a vote. The World Assembly elects our Board, which meets face-to-face twice a year and holds regular teleconferences. The Board oversees the work of the campaign, the budget and guides the work of the Secretariat.

The Secretariat is the international staff body of the campaign which supports the development of the members, produces campaign resources such as advocacy reports and campaign materials and leads international campaigns and campaign launches.

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a civil society movement that aims to end exclusion in education. Education is a basic human right, and our mission is to make sure that governments act now to deliver the right of everyone to a free, quality, public education.
