GPE Summit Side Event: Regional Hubs, Building Ownership and Knowledge Exchange

July 26 2021 02:00 pm - 03:30 pm BST
Virtual webinar

The sharing and exchange of knowledge with and among countries is one of the key functions of the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge Innovation Exchange (KIX). Four regional KIX hubs act as knowledge brokers among country representatives to identify priorities, and  share information, innovations and best practices. Together, hubs foster the exchange of demand-driven regional knowledge and build capacity of members to identify, use, share, and mobilize evidence.

Eighteen months after their launch, mostly working under the constraints of the pandemic, these hubs have activated regional exchanges and contributed to informed debates on essential education issues, identifying priorities of regional and national importance.  

On July 26, as a part of the “Global Education Summit: Financing GPE 2021-2025”, co-hosted by the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, and the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, KIX will be host a panel to highlight its hubs’ contribution to educational ownership and knowledge exchange at the regional and national levels.  The side event will be hosted in English and it will include simultaneous translation in French.

This panel will feature representatives from the four KIX Hubs who will compare and discuss the lessons learned on:

  1. What works and what doesn't, when increasing the involvement of national representatives in the KIX Hub initiatives;
  2. Effective mechanisms to identify and validate priorities regarding knowledge and research;
  3. Innovative ways to share knowledge, build capacity and foster exchange in times of limited mobility.
