Oslo's Safe Schools Declaration endorsed by 100 states
The Safe Schools Declaration, a product of the 2015 Oslo Conference on Safe Schools, has now been endorsed by 100 states across the world.
The Oslo Conference marked the beginning of a global commitment to provide safe education for children and young people in conflict-affected countries. The conference was catalyzed by attacks on thousands of students, teachers, and educational institutions by military forces, armed groups, and security forces. At the time, 28 million children worldwide were prevented from attending school due to armed conflict.
