Dear GCE Members,
We hope Global Action Week is going well! Here are some quick updates to help you with your national campaigns:
New Campaign Films
GCE has three new campaign films for everyone to use. You can view all of them at www.youtube.com/campaignforeducation. This has been done with the help of the UN Secretary-General, the UNESCO Director-General, and GCE members VSO International – to whom we are very grateful!

If you are working with schools to promote the campaign, they can also register their activities at the website! These will be linked to your country page so anyone can see all of the activities that are going on nationally in one place. They can register here: www.everychildneedsateacher.org/schools/register
Please contact Sherry (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have major news items to report so we can get these out across the whole of the network.
We are about to email the GCE supporter database with an e-action directed at the World Bank, as the biggest external funders and substantial influencer of national education policies. The text of this action is attached, but it will be live on the campaign website on Tuesday 23 April. The action enables supporters to directly email all 25 of the World Bank Executive Directors.
For those coalitions which run their own e-campaign databases, please do let us know if you would like us to include your national database in the mailing.
Good luck to everyone – more updates tomorrow!
