According to the media reports, the seminar planned by the G20 education working group is different from those conducted by any other country in the past. The official said that this is the first time that inputs have been looked at from all the G20 nations for the seminar.
However, around 16 countries have already shared their common issues and best practices. They are expected to put up a document at the end of the seminar and that document would give a roadmap for the meeting to find futuristic solutions to the challenges experienced by the G20 nations.

The Education Working Group will organise three seminars throughout the year, the second seminar is scheduled to be held in Amritsar on the topic of research collaboration in the month of March, whereas the third seminar will be conducted on building capacities and promoting lifelong learning in the context of future of work in Bhubhaneshwar, and the last seminar will be conducted on ensuring foundational literacy and numeracy in Pune.
