The World Literacy Summit



A global initiative on one of the world’s largest challenges – improving lives through literacy.

A world wide problem and this summit is about bringing together people from across the globe to share ideas, create platforms and to build a greater awareness of the international literacy crisis.

Children are great learners and time spent in reading is still the best way to support learning, and alongside the children it is hoped to reach out to parents too.

It has the power to transform lives, it helps families, through literacy; out of poverty and into prosperity.

Best of all it can broaden horizons, fuel imaginations and develop creativity.

The World Literacy Summit is being held at Oxford from 1st to 4th April. There is a wealth of speakers and debates, including Dr Tony Cree from the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation and Dr Patricia Edwards from International Reading Association.
