The world faces three fundamental and urgent challenges: prosperity, security and health. Every day we are inundated with stories of poverty-stricken countries, bloodied children becoming the victims of conflict and the many lives lost to preventable diseases. The magnitude of such suffering leaves many feeling helpless.

The #LearningGeneration report proposes one central answer to these challenges: educate future generations in order to alleviate the global problems we face.
