There are also a range of opportunities for meeting Education Cluster partners and moving forward work together at national, regional and global events throughout the year.

Global Meetings

Globally, the full Education Cluster Working Group [LINK] meets once a year at a Global Education Cluster Meeting that involves Cluster Coordinators and partners from the field as well as the ECWG members and the ECU staff. A small group of ECWG focal points meets a second time to discuss workplan progress and ensure activities are on track. For more information about the Global Education Cluster Meetings, see the dedicated webpage here

National Meetings

Nationally, active Clusters or Working Groups typically meet regularly to share information and move forward key areas of work for emergency response or preparedness. To find out if there is a Cluster or Working Group in your location visit the Country Coordination webpage here [LINK].

Other Thematic Events

There are a range of other events, workshops and trainings that happen at global, regional and national levels, including needs assessment trainings and workshops, technical education in emergencies trainings and cluster coordinator trainings. You will find details of any upcoming events and workshop on our Events Listing [LINK] page.
