Education Cannot Wait, the only global multilateral fund for education in emergencies (EiE), will be holding their replenishment conference in 2023 and aiming to raise at least $1.5billion. A strong global effort to ensure education in emergencies is high on the political agenda is essential to ensure this important target is met. 


In the lead up to this summit, a global campaign is being developed by key education stakeholders including the 100 Million campaign, Global Students Forum, Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies, Plan International, Save the Children, and World Vision to push governments to take action.

We must ensure that education remains a reality for millions of children impacted by emergencies, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. As the most affected group, it is crucial that the demands of young people are reflected on the international stage and have a say in the decisions that impact their lives. 


Young people, students and young refugees themselves are being invited to play a critical role in the creation and leadership of this new global partnership campaign.

The 100 Million campaign has organised three global youth consultations to capture the insight, expertise and experiences of a diverse group of youth-led organisations, activists and student unions around the world. Their feedback will be used to co-create a global call to action for the campaign.


There will be upcoming opportunities throughout 2022 and 2023 to engage with and lead the campaign in your country and/or community. This page will be updated with future actions and if you would like to be the first to hear about them, register to the 100 Million campaign to receive new opportunities straight in your inbox.
