The 2018 G7 Summit will take place this week. The leaders of the world’s seven largest economies will convene to make decisions that could have massive effects on the world. Malala Yousafzai has called on world leaders to invest in girls’ education, saying it is “the single best thing you can do this week.”

Malala understands the immense value of education, and knows that providing girls with an education does not only change their lives. Equal access to education strengthens communities, countries, and the world as a whole.

“This is not only a moment for you and the people of your country,” she says, “but also a significant moment for the 7.6 billion people around the world.”

When world leaders meet this week, they’ll have a lot of important choices to make. Malala hopes they will make the right choice.

“I hope that you will choose to be bold. I hope that you will choose to be smart. I hope that you will choose to invest in safe quality and free access to 12 years of education for every girl in every corner of the world, inside and outside of the G7 countries.”
