Videos and resources webinar “The COVID-19 pandemic: better aligning education and health” now available!

Many of you participated in the webinar “The COVID-19 pandemic: better aligning education and health” on Monday 13 July 2020. We would like to thank the guest speakers and all the participants for their excellent contributions. The videos and all the resources are now available on the dedicated web page.

This webinar was an opportunity to discuss the challenges and conditions necessary to better align education and health in the perspective of the COVID-19 pandemic. The results of a global survey on the reopening of schools, as well as the EI Guidance on Reopening Schools and Educational Institutions were presented. The following three questions were answered:

  • What have we learned from the field about the successes and challenges of re-opening schools? by Nicola Gray, on behalf of UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education and International Association for Adolescent Health (IAAH)
  • How is Covid-19 affecting or changing education? by Sean Slade, Senior Director of Global Outreach ASCD
  • What is the perspective of the teacher’s profession on the pandemic? by Antonia Wulff, COVID 19 Policy Co-ordinator Education International (EI)

Looking forward to see you at the next Global Health & Education webinar! Learn more about the webinar series.
