Vantage announces partnership with UNESCO for education

As part of its ethical responsibility to improve educational prospects in developing nations like India, Vantage, a worldwide multi-asset trading platform, today announces a partnership with UNESCO. 
 
Vantage is assisting the “State of the Education Report for India, 2022 – Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education,” which was introduced today in New Delhi, India, as part of this relationship. 
 
The report discusses a number of important topics at the interface between artificial intelligence (AI) and education, such as how AI could empower teachers and advance our understanding of the learning process. 
 
Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, Marc Despallieres, commented on the collaboration, saying, “Our global exposure and presence in emerging areas have given us a unique perspective into the problems faced by our communities. With UNESCO, we hope to develop a long-term, strategic cooperation built on the principles of inclusion and equity. As a provider of financial services, our support for programmes promoting digital literacy among students and learners in India and other developing technological innovations in education was a reasonable first step to embark on this educational journey.

Director and UNESCO Representative to Bhutan, India, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka Eric Falt said the following when discussing the importance of artificial intelligence in financial inclusion: “While the globe may be divided on AI, one thing is for sure: it is here to stay. AI has made financial inclusion a reality in India thanks to the development of ICTs and digital banking platforms. Improving people’s economic and social well-being, particularly that of women, requires financial education and skill development. Because Vantage shares our commitments, we are thrilled to work together.” 
 
The collaboration between Vantage and UNESCO New Delhi unites two organizations that share the goal of making sure that no one is left behind. Vantage intends to use its financial and technological know-how in the upcoming years to help UNESCO’s educational initiatives in India by making teaching more accessible and providing the advantages of education to those who need it the most. 
 
Another significant step has been taken in Vantage’s corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) journey, which was formally inaugurated in July 2022, with its strategic relationship with UNESCO. During the week of the Extreme E race in Sardinia, Italy, Vantage has been working with well-known digital media firm Supercar Blondie to promote awareness of climate change and women’s empowerment.
