The ability to read and write is directly linked to positive outcomes in education, employment, health, and economic achievement. Yet in 2020, the reality is, illiteracy and functional literacy still impacts our families, communities, schools, workforces and the stability of nations across the globe.

Today within the literacy issue, we often talk about digital literacy, financial illiteracy, generational illiteracy, research gaps, the distribution of evidence-based practices and more.

As leaders in the sector, we strive for improvement, growth, collaboration, and exploration to make a greater impact on our world’s literacy.

‘Reading Changes Lives!’ We know organizations like yours impact research and affect roles to influence global literacy. What everyone needs to know… ‘What is your story?’

The World Literacy Summit 2020 will explore these and associated ideas in the pursuit of improved literacy opportunity across the world.
