The Summit

The third World Literacy Summit will be held in Oxford, United Kingdom and the three day event will commence the 25th of March 2018. It will serve as a unique opportunity for delegates to collaborate, share ideas, learn and be united to close the global literacy gap in the 21st century. The Summit provides a platform for debate, discussion and sharing of knowledge between some of the world’s most ardent literacy and educational leaders, institutions, organisations and pioneers.

Champions of literacy will come from various countries and professional sectors to gather for a 3-day international event. Previous speakers have included Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands and representatives from UNESCO, UNICEF, Global Partnership for Education, National Literacy Trust, World Reader, Books for Africa and LitWorld, Save the Children, World Vision, Plan International, University of Auckland, University of London, Charles Sturt University, Monash University, University of KwaZulu-Natal and many more.
